How are others determining if an operation is mirrored

Esteemed Contributor
Esteemed Contributor

When creating shop docs, my users want to have an indication if the operation is mirrored or not.

This is easy for regular, multiple of 90°, MCS orientations, but if the MCS is at any given angle it is not so easy at all.

 

I can analyse the transformation matrix, but there are situations, where this is not really easy.

An indicator like "mirrored about MCS X" would be nice.

 

Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated Smiley Wink

Re: How are others determining if an operation is mirrored

@Stefan_Pendl, I asked the developers, and they have an easy way to tell if an operation is mirrored from the API.

 

Before you invest a lot in this, I want to let you know that there is a new CAM operation mirror command planned for NX 11.0.1. This will be much better than the current transformation, and will have API converage.

Thank you @MarkRief, so I will have to extend the shop docs with another DLL.

We will skip NX 11 for production, since we are just finishing the migration to NX 10.

 

Any way to get the name of the API method used?
