is it possible to turn the X and the Y

Just a question as I now discover that I build my machine in with the Axis switched around.
also wondering if I'm the only one doing this.
I built the machine to a standerd board size 1220 x 2440 mm. In the lengte of 2440 I have two Axis along side the machine.

Since I got the 4 axis version and you can only slave the X and with the forth one the A, the Y and Z just have one motor.
Now when I put in a drawing and I have my home at the bottom right corner (seen from the top) everything comes out mirrored and 90 turned.

if I could just switch the X and the Y and slave the A to the Y I think I would be fine, but is there a way I could do this just in the settings??

Not completely sure of the question, but I had a similar issue. My "long axis" is Y and I have two motors on that axis. I upgraded to the 4 axis machine so I could slave "B" to "Y" so as to maintain the X-Y relationship consistent with my machine design and software. I believe the "A" axis slaves to "X" by default.
