Mirror parts

Post by Erik Davidson » Wed Oct 14, 2015 10:59 am

Hi,

Is there a way to mirror parts / components in a fast way? When you repeat parts in an assembly with mirror you en up with mirrored parts but I haven't found away to do this on a single part to quickly create a mirror of a part. I have tried edit / transform but to no luck. Anyone have any ideas?

What is you real problem? That you can't select a single shape in a multi shape component?

Hi,

No. I would like to make a mirror of a whole assembly. This is possible when I mirror stuff in a repeat process with simple or double mirror but then the assemblies are connected to each other which complicates further work. I would like to be able to mirror a singe assembly and create a mirrored version of that assembly.

Hello

In some cases, you can even create a mirror part (any transformation you want), then you create a new alternative set with your mirrored part only.

See you
