Posted · Mirrored prints duet wifi

I'm embarrassed to write this but i'm getting mirrored prints (Y axis) on my Ultimaker 2 clone using a Duet 2 wifi running firmware 3.11. It prints well just mirrored?

All axis move in the correct direction and I can home each axis independently as well as home all axis.


I have all manor of configurations, in fact so many that I have lost track. For the life of me I can not get the Y axis to print the correct way. I can make Cura mirror the print but that is not the correct way to fix this and besides I am likely to forget to do that sometime in the future. 


The X and Y axis end-stops are in the top rear left corner. The Z end-stop is at the top.

    I should have walked away and come back to this when I was less tired. I had flipped the y axis and thought i had re-positioned the end-stop but what I had done was turn the endstop off. Duh .....


    Anyway all fixed now thanks
