    So I did exactly what I originally did with my original printer.(except for my prusa I ended up printing things mirrored for a few days before working it out)

    The X and the Y endstops were not working for right axis so I swapped them. However they triggered in wrong direction. E.g. if you manually pushed the endstop down the motor would still move closer to you, however wouldn't go away from endstop.

    Make sure you label your motor cables and plug them into the right connector! I had my Y plugged into X and vice versa. Swapping them back helped.

    For those like me who struggle with X and Y...
    X is side to side of build plate. and Y is front to back.
