G101-MIRROR IMAGE (Example)


In this example, we will mirror the Pocket on the right in the X-axis, producing a similar pocket on the left.

G01 X-1.2153 Y0.552 ;

G01 X-1.3059 Y-0.528 ;

G03 X-1.2153 Y-0.552 R.0625 ;

G01 X-0.4653 Y-0.052 ;

G03 X-0.4653 Y0.052 R.0625 ;

M99 ; 

Because the pocket is symmetrical around the X-axis, we could add a Y0 in line N10 and not change the part. This would allow us to Climb Mill on the second pocket as well as the first.
