Jogging control on Cura 5.4 REVERSED


Recommended Posts

Posted · Jogging control on Cura 5.4 REVERSED


I am using CURA V5.4.0 to print on an Ender-5 3D printer through a USB port connected to my Windows 10 PC

everything works find except for a little problem which I am not able to figure out.

When I press the 'UP' arrow on the jogg interface, the plate moves down. When I press either left or right, the printhead moves in the opposite direction to what I press. Has anyone seen this behaviour and is there any idea on how to correct it?

    Regarding the X and Y - the Ender 5 is built backwards.  The 0,0,0 is the right rear corner as that was the easiest place to mount the end-stop switches.

    In regards to the Z jog it is not the direction of the build plate but rather the distance between the plate and the nozzle.  So "up" means "increase distance" and not "move plate up" which would decrease the distance.


    This is correct and shows the origin in the right rear.  (You just need to stand behind the machine for it to look OK.)
