    Change motor direction with Full graphic smart controller

    Hello,

    i am building my own 3d printer.
    As part of calibration process i need to reverse the motor direction to skip gantry back and forth.
    I dont know if it is normal that you cant change the direction of your motors with the Full graphic smart controller.
    So thats why i ask. Is that possible, did i oversee something in the configuration.h in Marlin?
    I cannot calibrate printer if i need to remove the belt everytime gantry has reached end of printer.....
    I need help please....

    Kind Regards

    Would need to see your Configuration.h file.
    You can post it to a share like Google Drive and post a link.

    Looked at you Configuration.h file See no reason for no movement.
    can you do a test on the end-stops using M119 test each end-stop in the normal position then again with manually Pressed End-Stop

    http://marlinfw.org/docs/gcode/M119.html

    Would you tell me what 3D Printer you have or Clone 3D Printer.

    Do you have a Proximity sensor of an End-stop switch on Z-Axis.
    What is your filament diameter. Do you have a Hotbed.

    All end-stops set to False, Filament set to 3mm, bed temp sensor set to 0,

    I would enable this
    //#define EEPROM_SETTINGS // Enable for M500 and M501 commands

    I always put something in these, to give further information
    #define STRING_CONFIG_H_AUTHOR "(Clif R.)"

    #define CUSTOM_MACHINE_NAME "HICi3 v1.1RC8"

    I use this electronics kit.

    I do currently have no end stops installed. I have some optical sensors here.....
    i tried it also on x and y axis . Motor moves only in one direction upon scrolling the Knob in the other direction....
    I have also a 220V heating mat.... but not installed yet... and a SSR.

    Its my own design....
    But my problem is the electronics.... Mechanics move flawlessly

    ok. I figured out what it was.
    Endstop was not installed... So sth in software apparently wasnt closed loop anymore....
    Thanks a lot. You helped me a lot.
    Best regards
