I’m pretty confused now, I have now printed quite some parts with the printer, mainly a complete MPCNC and some accessories, and I never really noticed it that I’m printing everything mirrored.
In fact, there were two cases for my ramps and raspberry, and I was thinking some I…t put’em wrong into Thingiverse.
When I printed another corner for the MP3DP during the night, I noticed that it was mirrored too, but this time I knew something must be wrong, as I printed a set correctly before on my Ender 3.
I also found out, that I had switched the X with the Y axis.
So I started from scratch, downloaded the Marlin-MP3DP_Ramps_16T_MK firmware and flashed the board, did some specific changes to my setup like board (MKS instead Ramps), Extruder (BMG), and Dual_Z.
Then I went further that all the axis were moving in the same way as if I control them on Octoprint.
So X moving to the left, value decreases, moving to the right value increase.
With Y it was a bit more tricky, I changed the Y_Home_Dir from -1 to 1, as the limit switch is on the back (away from me), also wired the limit switch to Ymax, and un-commented it in the firmware. OK, homing is working correctly now, X0,Y0 is on the lower left.
Thats also the settings in the slicer and on Octoprint.
And still it’s printing the parts mirrored, I don’t understand what I’m doing wrong here. It’s not a great deal to do it in the slicer, but something seems to be wrong.
