To Mirror Cut Motions
In Wire EDM, you can create Automatic Cut motions by mirroring previously created cut motions. The mechanism for selecting a cut motion to mirror is the same as when you create cut motions using the Use Prev option.
You cannot mirror a cut motion that was created using the Mirror option.
