Question #: 12215

Question: What side of the x and y axis do you mount the stepper motor to? If it does not matter what side, do I have to change something in mach3?

Current Solution

It is usually best to mount the motor in a way so it is spinning clockwise to avoid confusion.

Additional Information:
ok, but lets say the motors turn clockwise. if you mount it to ether side of the y axis it will pull to that side so what are the correct positions of the stepper motors. is it the left side or the right side of the y axis and also is it the front or back of the x axis?

Additional Information:
cw250 with mach3 controller
