    I am experimenting with having two steppers on the y-axis of a 3D printer I'm building. The housings for these are mirrored so I will need the steppers counter-rotating. The steppers will be series wired. How do I invert the wiring for rotation?

    Reverse the wire of one coil on one of the motors.
