    Filament drive is reversed

    I just put together an Mbot3D Cube kit, and I couldn't get it to take the filament into the extruder. I would manually lock it into the extruder, and then use the "load" command on the control panel. It would reverse the filament out of the extruder and start clicking. I then manually loaded the filament and tried the "unload" command, it then started to extrude my abs! I double checked my wiring and all appeared correct. The plugs going into the filament motors can't be reversed because they have keyways that prevents that from happening. On the mainboard the plugs can be flipped over, but the plugs sit at an odd angle compared to the other correct plugs. That is what I had to do, is reverse the plugs on the mainboard and it now works like a charm! Even though the plugs look goofy, it works.
