First job, text wrong way

Hi there today i started my first project. Was just a simple text, but when the laser engraved it did wrong way…also i wanted to cut it, but it didnt work…
Can you help me with this?
I want to use it just for hobby and do some diy work…

Hello Valeria and Welcome to Lightburn,

In most cases, when the work produced is flipped or backwards it’s an issue with the Device Origin.

Select Device settings and then in the Basic settings tab you’ll see the Working size and Origin

Machine settings - coordinate system large

From our documentation page: Device Settings - LightBurn Software Documentation

If your laser output is mirrored horizontally or vertically, move the dot to the opposite corner, horizontally or vertically, depending on the direction that the output is mirrored, and that will correct it.

This is worth reviewing as well.

Let me know if this works or doesn’t work. I’ll be following this until you find success.

Kind regards,
