Can't pattern mirror curves or surfaces in Part edit

Hi,

 

I use the Pattern/Mirror command frequently in Part edit with solid bodies.  Is it possible to mirror curves or surfaces using this commmand or is there a different way?

 

Thanks

Does it need to be in Ordered environment?

When I'm in Synchronous, the Pattern/Mirror button is greyed out when I select a surface or curve.

Hi @Planker81

 

 

no, it even is easier in sync, but I had opend the example file for another thread (pink lines) and just used this part for further explaining.

Still no luck here, I've tried a curve and a surface. The pattern/mirror button is still greyed out.

@Planker81  Looks like you are running ST7  can you confirm.   I assume @hawcad is on ST9 or even ST10

 

maybe this was an enhancement since ST7?

HI @Johnson_BigMatt

Hi @Planker81

 

 

but I believe to remember that I have patterned/mirrored surfaces and curves 10 or more years ago, so to say with v20 or even older.

 

Maybe I miss something but patterning of surfaces was an example with v12 or v14 presentations (handmixer, vase etc.)
