[ADDED] Mirror function

I suggest the capability to create a mirror image of a part on the build plate.

This would be useful to make right hand and left hand versions of the same part.

Or can we already do that?

This has been requested before ---- someone suggested being able to enter negative scaling numbers (like X scale = -1.000 to mirror image along the X axis) as a way to mirror the print. But I just tried it in 2.1.1 under Linux and you can't enter a negative scale.

For now, probably have to do it in your CAD software.... :-(

Anybody else got some trick? A script or EXE utility to run the gcode through, perhaps?
