Creality is printing with mirror effect

Post by hippolyte50 » July 7th, 2018, 2:34 pm

Hi everybody,
I have a Creality Cr-10 and i'm using Cura 3.4.
Each print i'v done is printing with a "mirror effect" , my print doesn't look like my orginal STL File.
It's like the left side is print like the right side. See attached my stl file and my print.
Do you know what happened?

Can you post a picture of your assembled 3D Printer.

Creality Cr-10 Printers come programmed. The only way I know to mirror the print. Would be to invert the X-Z-Axis assembly structure.

should look like this

It's look like your picture.
Can the issue came from CURA?
Thanks

and when i'm going to prepare -> Move axis -> Z = the printer is going up and down well
When i'm going to move axis -> X = the printer is going back and front
It's does'nt seems to be invert

Looking at the Bottom picture it appears that you have the Y-Axis connectors connected to the X-Axis.
The next picture up from the bottom shows that the Y-Axis connector has the X-Axis connectors attached.
