Printing letters backwards or mirrored. Pictures included.

Printing backward:
Attached is a picture of results. I highlighted the word "Elise". It prints exactly backward. The bed is shown in the "Home" position.
I have also attached pictures of the board connections, as well as the X-stepper connection.
Using Cura 3.6.0

First photo from the top of the Aurora. This is where the HOME position is. Notice that "Elise" is spelled backward.(mirrored)

Here is the connection at the board:

    To me this looks like a firmware problem... I would contact JGAurora and send them your STL file. Unless they provide the firmware source code this is not something we can fix easily.

    Thank you for your help with this. I did as you said, and JGAurora answered back pretty quickly:

    Thank you for email.
    If you say the "Elise " problem , it relates to cura and your 3D software .
    Every model has different slicer way.
    So i can't help you slove this problem .
    But i will ask our engineer and give me a solution.

    Hopefully the engineer can give you an option... the other option is to reverse the STL in cura before printing.
