ok so being rather silly where do i go to get that up


I don’t know anything about the 3018 but have seen it discussed in this forum before. Here is an old forum that discussed the problem you’re having and what setting $3 should be. If you are still having trouble @NeilFerreri1 will help get you going.
Good Luck

Change that to 2

changed it as you said now the x axis goes the wrong way

I thought you said both were backwards…


No they go the right way when you jog them , picture on screen is all correct but when it does the carving then it’s mirrored so back to front and upside down

They do now? Or before you changed $3?


I am new with this, my carving is allso mirrored on 2 axes and i read about the $3 command. but… where can i change this $3 command in Easel ??
