Mirrored assembly - swapping X motors?
I just finished assembly of my new/used Shopbot PRS Standard (MY 2007). All of the steppers are mounted per the assembly manual, along with the plexiglass wiring hoop.
Based on where the Shopbot is located in the shop, I'd like to switch the X1 and X2 motors so I can mount the control box and spindle VFD on the FRONT side of the Shopbot (based on the assembly manual designation of FRONT vs. BACK). Is this a simple matter of switching the X steppers, running the X2 wire through the gantry in the other direction, and switching the X1 and X2 connections at the control box?
It also looks like the wiring hoop can be mounted on the other side of the YZ car, and the L-shaped plate can obviously be moved to the other side of the gantry.
Any issues with the above? Sorry if this borderlines on a dumb question...
Thanks in advance!
