Hi There,

I've build a prusa i3 printer with a megatronics board and marlin firmware. I wanted to use Cura as slicer but when configuring i noticed that cura has my z axis inverted. When i use the bed leveling wizzard i push up printer goes down and down is up. I don't have this problem in Slic3r and Pronterface.

Can you help me because i preffer using cura in stead of pronterface.

gr Marc

    Up and down might mean a different thing for your printer. It means "bed up" and "bed down" in Cura (as the Ultimakers have moving beds that go up and down) Just a naming thing on those buttons.
