Details of ISSUE or REQUEST (Please be as specific as possible): This is my first project using the Shapeoko after taking the training class. I’ve just installed the Easel Driver onto my Macbook and selected CARVE from the webpage (http://easel.inventables.com/). When going through the instructions, it asks me to home the bit in the bottom left corner. I manually move the X, Y and Z down to where I want it and hit the button to verify it is now in the home position that I want. I then hit start and the bit moves in the expected Y direction into the wood, but it moves LEFT (away from the wood), instead of RIGHT (towards the center of the wood). I tried setting the home to the bottom right of the piece I was carving, and mostly everything else went well, but the text was mirrored.
After writing this, I tried the same actions with the MakerSpace #19 laptop and I had the same results.
