Mirror Component

Howdy,

 

Anyone know if it is possible to mirror a component in an assembly?  I want to make a symetric assembly with the same component as qty 2 in the BOM. 

Using NX10.0.3.5 MP14/TC10.1.7.1

 

Something like mirroring the backup rings in this image. It's the same part, just on the other side of the elastomer.

Seems the reuse and reposition option noted in this post is similar, but I can't seem to find it.

Thanks,

When you follow the steps in the mirror assembly wizard, you will have default 'Reuse and Reposition' type at one of the steps. After selecting the component you can change it to the associative mirror or non-associative mirror.

Hi Ganesh, Perfect, thank you!

 

The 'Naming Policy' step prior to that one with the renaming is very confusing and in the case of re-use... moot.

 

I completely missed the icons on the last step indicating re-use.

 

Thanks again!
