X and Y inverted?

by SimplyDesigns

So I completed my first successful print which was a standard calibration cube only to discover the Z printed backwards?!? (It looks like a rigid S) I beilve this means both the X and Y axis are inverted (I have double checked the model and the Z is in the proper direction) but I'm not sure why. I am currently running Marlin 1.4.4 and I was wondering if I need to change a line or two of code there or if I simply have the wiring of my board wrong. Any help is appreciated and thank you in advanced.

MKS Base v1.4 pinout

by Denis56

Hi all,

I am looking for the complete pinout (and if possible a schematic) of the MKS Base v1.4 sold with my Tarantula, and I cannot find it. I specifically want to locate pins 4 and 44, for a few mods I'd like to try, but no joy so far. Attached is a picture of the board. Thanks for your help.

Tevo Owners Discord

by MadOnion

I've been looking for a discord channel, I have not been able to find one with more than 5-6 members however. So I figured I would make my own. I think we would benefit from a place to help each other in real time. It's pretty bare right now but I'm willing to give this a shot or pass the mantle later on if I feel its right. Of course if there happens to be a group for Tevo printers I am unaware of pay this no mind and let me know about it.
I'm an idiot and used the wrong kind of link with limited uses, this one should be unlimited:https://discord.gg/cwGxYyw

Which Couplings are the Best for Tevo Tarantula Z-Axis?

by rebeltaz

Due to the upgrades I've added to my Tarantula's carriage, the weight seems to have stretched the default Z-axis coupling. I'm looking at this rigid coupler on Amazon but I'm not sure this is a good choice. What do you guys/gals think? If no, what would you suggest?

I am running the no-sand oldham coupler, so any out-of-straight in the rod should be taken out by that, no?
