Print. If you can read both Rs correctly all done. If one is backwards then goto

Replicator->Machine->Onboard Preferences

and select or unselect the appropriate axis then reprint to be sure.

MANY THANKS! worked great to solve my problem!

anyone know why thingiverse makes the preview backwards?

Good job sir!

I tip my top-hat to your ingenuity!


It might be better to use 2 different letters, so you can instantly determine which axis is switched, even after the part is removed.

Sadly, both X

Or, you could do something like "test" written on an arc of a circle... shrug

I figured people would look at it in the build platform but here is a version 2 option That says RX and RY

Simple yet effective.

yep. my dad always told me KISS(keep it simple stupid). And making things the simplest they can be and still work is always the best policy.
