Hello everyone, i'm newbie in 3d printing. So i bought used ultimaker with inverted X, Y axises. Trying to compile marlin firmware with Ginge's builder, then upload firmware with cura 13.12 and it's gone. I cant control x and y axises and when connect to replicatorg there is an error

    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:


    scroll way down to the gcodes on this page:
