    Hii all. Im a brand new member off your Fora :) Im from Denmark, and have a laser, Dremel CNC and some Prusa 3d printers.
    Now i make a new laser ingraver. I use the blackbox ( great box ) Nema 17 motors and a 20 w laser.
    but I wonder.. Offcause i use 2 motors to Y , but.. Y2 has to run the other way :) what can I do ??

    See docs:blackbox:connect-nema23-reversed-y2 [OpenBuilds Documentation] for a Reversed-Y2 Motor wiring setup (very simple, just reverse wiring order)

    Same principle applies :) - NEMAxx is just the physical mounting pattern (where the screw holes are located, and some basic face dimensions)

    For NEMA17s just remember to turn down the current: docs:blackbox:currentadjustment [OpenBuilds Documentation]
