alternating approach axis in profiling sequence

Hello Pro E CAM users...

I´m working on a profiling sequence, using the build cut functionality.

Currently this sequence is not efficient since the tool has to return to the retract plane and then move to the approach axis prior to increasing its depth in order to start profiling the new slice, always moving in the same direction.

Is there a way to make the tool increase its depth on alternate extremes, such that after the first pass (right to left) it will increase its depth in the left extreme and then the tool will cut the next pass moving in the opposite direction (left to right), increasing its depth in the right extreme, and so on? I´m looking for a more efficient tool path.

please look at the image attached,

thanks, regards

AL.
