    I'm having trouble with my Y and A axes. I have Y and A slaved together, according to the Blackbox instructions. The slave axis jumpers are set according to the Blackbox documentation, but the motors turn opposite one another. Is there a setting inside Openbuilds Control, or do I need to change a grbl setting? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    If it is a belt machine, you want them to spin opposite. If lead screw, then just reverse one wire pair on one of the Y motors.

    Thanks for the reply. I am running leadscrews on my Y axis. So I just need to reverse one coil's polarity? I'll try this today.

    Reversing one pair for the Y should do it.
