Does the "Reverse" button work for anyone?

Hi Everybody,

We managed to get Repsnapper connecting with our Mendel, things are moving and heating up just fine so far! smiling smiley What I was wondering was if anyone is using the "Reverse" button beside the "Run extruder" button in the "Interactive control" area with any success. It doesn't seem to working here. I can get the extruder to run, but not reverse.

Thanks for any feedback!

Works for me, may be related to your electronics/firmware ?

I use techzone monotronics (with their custom firmware).

Does it turn in the normal direction when you use reverse, or not move at all ?

Bonjour Deux Vis,

Thanks for your reply.

We are using the Techzone monotronics -with their firmware as well, which is supposedly the most up-to-date.

I just figured it out!! You have to have the reverse button in the "on" position and then you have to click on "Run extruder" - I thought reverse would just reverse on its own... silly me smiling smiley I seem to be answering my questions these days! At least if someone else has the same problem they will find this message, I hope.

Fine, yes it's a toogle and you must still use the other button. The fact that the main button is a toogle itself doesn't help getting it I reckon.
