Mirror feature command (Ordered) not recognizing pattern

Pioneer

I am trying to mirror a pattern of rectangular strip extrustions about a mid-plane. I have tried using both smart and fast mirror options.  I have no problem selecting the pattern, but when I  select the plane,  no mirrored feature results. I am certain I am doing this correctly, but obviously have encountered something new. 

 

I upgraded to ST10 MP3 yesterday.

 

My laptop is an MSI WT70-2OK with an i7-M4810 chipset running Win10 Pro and using an Nvidia Quadro K-3100 GPU.

 

Thanks!

Hi there @jstockton,

 

I this case you are mirroring the actual body not just features on a body, so you might try using the sub-menu command "Mirror Copy Part"..... hope that helps.

Hi Sean

Thanks for the quick response.

 

The screen shot I used was misleading - I intended it only to show the model and what I was up against. I'm uploading the image of working within the part itself and trying to mirror the original strip as well as the array and the 1st mirrored image. 

 

As you can see the original strip is the only feature that gets mirrored. However, the construction consists of the original strip on the bottom left corner which is patterned and then mirrored about the x-z plane. I want to mirror the entire group about the y-z plane now, but this is where the error is occuring. The error I get is "some of the resulting features do not add or remove any material"

 

Thanks for your thoughts,

 

John

Hi @jstockton

 

 

at the moment I only can assume some reasons.

 

For me, it looks like that there are multi bodies within Your part and the base body (plate) seems not to be the active one. I can imagine that a mirror of a cutout and patter in empty space will not work as long as tehre is nothing from where You can cut.

 

But this only is a feeling when look onto Your image

 

 

regards
Wolfgang

Please see updated image for further clarity. I know I must be missing something but with 10 years on SE I can't figure this one out. it should be easy.

can you share your native SE file...   even if you need to obscure the original base profile and other features...    but let us take a hack at the real model as you see it regarding the mirror command.

@nominus38, did you try it with the ends on the plane, then mirror the whole set over at that plane? ...I get errors using Mirror Copy Feature, until using Mirror Copy Body, at least, in that scenario.

Hi Sean,

 

That solved it! It was right under my nose but I didn't see it - thanks for identifying that option.
