Gang after some more playing around I was able to get the mirror function to perform as I expected it to. I'm fine with calling this new user error. But don't tell my wife I admitted I was wrong!!
I greatly appreciate the videos and tips on possible solutions. I look forward to the new year and explorering the possibilities with SE ST6.
I am looking for the quickest way to mirror a non-symetrical flange from one side of the tab to the other side of the tab. Every attempt I've tried has failed to give me the simple results I need. What I am finding is that I don't have control of the placement plane. To get the results I need, I need to flip the normal of the placement plane.
The only way to get the results is to use an old trick from my NX days of projecting the original flange edges into the flange (sketch) profile and using those.
Any other options to get the quick results. The only things I need to ensure is that I can unform and get a flat pattern generated from the file.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You might try doing this with a circular pattern on the X-Y plane. Obviously the base tab would need to be at the center point [mid line] when defining the 2 count pattern circle.
Edit: You can as well create a temporary plane locate at the a mirror point and delete that plane later
Take three :-)
Detach is available on the mirror ribbon bar, no need to detach prior to mirror.
The most direct solution that I can find to your problem is shown in nthe attached video.
