Aspire upside down on machine

Postby BFD » Fri Jul 06, 2018 4:53 pm

I have a question and need help. I have a Biesse Klever router. When I use Apsire all of my pieces cut upside down. It generally isn't a problem unless I am cutting words. I have to lay those out upside down on Aspire and then they will cut right side up on the machine. Does anyone know what setting corrects this? I also have to use the bottom left datum setting to cut on my machine. If I use the top left the Y axis wont work. Any help would be appreciated.

I'd suggest editing your post processor.

In Aspire look at Help/Post Processor Edit Guide

You probably need to add a minus sign to on of you axis settings.

The Y axis is backwards on most Italian machines, with Y 0 in the back.
What I've done, is set up the job so that the Y axis goes from 0 to -49", and have the post processor convert the negative Y values to Positive.

Thanks for the info. Now I know the problem can someone talk me through fixing it. I am not the best at computers. I am using the Biesse skill 1224gft post processor. I cant figure out how to get into it.
