Wait - so marlin works - but your x and y axes dont' work? Using pronterface (or replicatorg) command the servos *off*. Then push the head to the middle. Then put the X axis in *relative* move mode and move 10mm to the right:

G1 X10

Does it move right or left? It should move right. You might also (or instead) have the limit switches backwards? Those are easy to swap - just swap the connectors.

ginge builder works quite well. You can use Cura "expert" menu to load the firmware. You probably already know this.

More gcodes are here:

great reference:

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
