x, y axis order

should the steppers for y-axis be above or below the steppers for x-axis?
or does it not matter?

Not sure I understand the question.

Uhh, they’re labeled on the boards.

It doesn’t matter. If you get the x and y backwards, then the cuts will just be rotate 90 degrees and your origin moves.

sorry, it has nothing to do with the board or wiring - it’s the construction. one pair of steppers is on the high rails and the other pair is on the lower rails.
I don’t think it matters, but I wanted to ask.

Okay, I understand just wanted to make sure we were on the same page.
It does not matter at all. I would just match the axis direction to whatever your screen looks like for your cam software. Usually x positive moves right, Y positive moves away.
