    "MirrorPartName" new parts appearing

    Rita Chapot

      I have a lot of parts that I'm using in differetn assemblies all the time. Last week, I noticed that new part files started appearing randomly. If a file is called "Apples" the new part is called "MirrorApples", and is saved in the same folder as Apples. I haven't been able to figure out when/why this is happening - very bizarre. Please advise.

          I'm pretty sure that's happening when you're using the Mirror Components function.  When you use the function, click on the blue arrow and go to the next page of the PropertyManager.



          It should look like this.



          I suspect you have "Create opposite hand version" selected, which will add an icon to the selected Part, and place the new mirror version of the Part in the folder, as you described.
