looking for a solution to a problem.
I currently have two handed parts, one is complete with its drawing. I have done a save as of this part and mirrored the model. How do I then get NX to update the drawing on the mirrored part without having to delete all views and dimensions and manually go in and in effect re-draft the mirrored part?
Solved! Go to Solution.
From the start, I would personally not recommend that you do it that way. The problem will be that when you need to edit the models, you will have to edit both of them, and because you used Save As, they are separate non-associated files, and you will need to update both of them.
Now when you edit the original part, they will both update.
The drawing is a different story. Someone might have a better answer here, but what I would do is
With this method, you will end up with linked parts, and associated drawings.
Many thanks for replying to my query.
I have done as suggested regarding the drawings. However I have had to mirror the normal handed part ontop of itself to preserve the view locations (We don't use master model...yet)
In relation to the mirrored parts, my company are a little funny with regards to wave linking parts - Yes it's more work for me, but thats how they prefer handed models to be done.
Thanks again for your reply.
