    X negative to X positive

    Is there a way to change from X negative to X positive without placing the tool on the opposite side of the part?

    You can multiply xpos by -1 before the output. For example:
    xpos=-1*xpos
    {nb, 'X'xpos}

    Be sure to check that it won't cause an accident before sending it to the machine!!!!

    anzory, Thanks for that.

    Do I add this to the GPP or Find it in the GPP and modify it ?

    Yes, it can be done. But I cannot guarantee that you will get a valid gcode. How will the arcs be built in this case? Chamfers? I can't predict that.
    You'll have to check it yourself before you load it on the machine.
