Sheetmetal Mirror

Discussion created by Andrew Chase on Jul 14, 2008
I wondered if anyone else has had problems with mirroring a sheetmetal part?
Not in the same drawing but clicking insert and half way down the pull down there is a tool called mirror part. I wanted to create a mirrored part with no links to the original so i clicked the tick button to say break link to part.
The problem is it says it cannot create a lot of the features and copies it as a dumb solid with none of the sheetmetal features. Is there anyway of doing this to keep the features?
I tried it with some complex extruded items with no problem it was just sheetmetal components.
The sheetmetal parts I am modelling are to complex to create a sheetmetal component from the dumb solid as i have already tried this technique.
