Reversed filament drives

Post by degan » Thu Apr 25, 2019 3:17 pm

It appears that all 4 quad filament drives are reversed. When I tell it to extrude it pushes it back, If I tell it to retract it feed into the head. Any comments?

Do you have the correct config files for your printer?

Stepper cables are typically designed to support flipping the connector over to reverse direction. If you can't find a solution through config files, then you can try that. Which printer are you using?

I have a Promega Quad that did the same thing out of the box. I flipped all the extruder connectors on the board and it solved the problem.
