    Default Mirror axis

    Hi,
    is there a way to mirror axis (Y-axis) in RhinoCAM post generator? So now in output I have positive Y but would like to have negative (same value, but negative).

    You might want to mirror the Y axis in our CAD drawing and then post it again and it should work correctly.

    Mirroring ni CAD is not a good solution in my case, would be much happier if that would be done in by post processor, if possibe.

    I don't see why mirroring the part in CAD wouldn't work for you, but I suppose you could configure a post that switched all the positive Y values to negative ones. Or do it in the CNC control program (Mach3 or whatever your machine uses) - remembering to switch it back when you wanted to make a regular part.

    I'm doing some tests on woodworking cnc machine where coordinate system is rotated by 180deg arround X-axis, that means also Z axis is pointed downwards...
    So, anyone know how to flip those coordinates by post?
