Making a opposite toolpath

Hello,

 

We recently switched from Mastercam to Fusion 360.  We are currently trying to take a part and generate a tool path for the opposite (mirrored) part.  We used to use xform mirror and it would flip both the cad data and the tool paths.  I have seen videos where you can mirror a pattern if you were to machine the shown and opposite at the same time.

 

We work on a lot on big parts where we can't always do that so it would be nice to have a separate program just for the opposite.  Currently we are mirroring the model in design, saving it and then copying the toolpaths over.  The downside to this is we have to repick all of the geometry for every toolpath. 

 

I was wondering if there is a better/faster way to do this?

 

Thanks

Try the Mirror Pattern in Fusion 360.
