I am printing an xyz calibration cube on my k280 delta, but it prints the Y on the left of the x and the on top as expected. When I print the same cube on my Anet E10 it comes out correct with the y on the right and on front, if I compare the two the delta one has to be flipped with the z on the bottom to get it to match the Anet Print. Any,ideas? I used Cura 4.3.0 for both. I have attached a photo with delta on left

The Z is backwards on the left cube... no amount or rotating it will fix this.

Mirrored printing on a delta normally means you have assigned the XYZ towers incorrectly. Convention is that the X tower is front left, the Y tower is front right, and the Z tower is back center.

Swap the stepper motors and endstop plugs on the controller to match this configuration.

that is exactly what it was, thanks, are there any good guides on tuning a delta, for instance if one side is too high do I increase or decrease the radius?

I would suggest you ask that in the Delta Machines sub forum here. [reprap.org]
