If he flashed my firmware it has those settings built in, so reset Grbl parameters would work too and it's faster.

Weak button pressed?

I'm not sure what you mean, my firmware is what's in T2Laser as the default, 1.1e.

I was asking about the Grbl version to be uploaded to the machine board.

Can you send me the one you use ?

You should install the default, not one of from the custom menu.

Take a look at nottingham82's post with the big arrow  ;D

Assuming you now have the correct firmware, what do you mean by swapped axis?

Backwards? Like left goes right? If so you can reverse the axis in the menu.

I'm so confused. You uploaded the custom axis swap firmware and the axis are swapped. I guess it works  ;)

If you don't want the axis swapped don't use that one, use the default 1.1e as noted in post #35.

so I attached a picture.  The red arrow is what you selected.  The green circle is what you need to select to not have swapped axis.  Also as a convention the control board is the back and the opposite side is the front.  Sometimes that confuses people when they are trying to get the laser to move the right way.
