When I mirror a part that has slots in it, I cannot dimension it as a slot. Nor can I apply a single center mark to it.
Original part with slot dimensioned with a hole wizard callout:
Mirrored part with slot dimensioned with a hole wizard callout:
We have a customer with this very same issue and it is with SolidWorks for review- I suspect a new SPR will be formulated. The SW engineer did comment that when you use the "Break link to original part" in the mirror part property manager, the callout will come through, but keeping them linked gives the behaviour which will likely become a bug.
Will update this post once we have the SPR number.
According to the Knowledge base, this was fixed in SW 2012 SP4.
I tested a couple things out:
I created a slot with the hole wizard, then mirrored the body in the same part, and it worked:
However, when I mirrored the part in an assembly (and created an opposite hand version), I made sure to select "Hole Wizard Data" when I mirrored the part.
Then I created a drawing of said mirrored part and, while I CAN get the center mark to work, the hole callout does NOT pass through the hole wizard data.
So, I am just confirming what you are seeing. I am using SW 2015 SP 5
Just to add to the discussion, I create other holes from the hole wizard on the original part, and updated the mirrored part and updated the drawing:
The hole wizard data does come through. However, in the property manager, the data is "dumb". You can no longer select the "callout Value" drop down box on the mirrored component:
I did, in fact, use the hole wizard data. I cannot get the center mark that you show.
When I created the single enter mark, I used the following tool:
Other than that....
I do not know.....maybe someone with SW 2016 SP5 can confirm that they are seeing the same behavior (I assume you are using SW 2016 SP5, as your profile says).
If not, then I would contact your VAR and either have them create an enhancement request, or add you to a current one.
Hi Dave, this is the SPR that has been logged- so see if you VAR can get you attached to this to increase the no. of customer's affected:
Typically, bugs are not searchable via the Enhancement Request area of the Customer Portal. Please remember that if you wish to add your vote to a bug, you'll still need to go through your VAR.
Matt, Are you saying the following (which was accessed from the ER portal) doesn't actually add a vote?
How about this one from the Knowledge Base?
That will work as it is marked as an Enhancement in SolidWorks' system. You will see the one I have posted above has a NO in the enhancement column hence the VAR has to add you to it. Anything that gets a "hit" in the enhancement section of the portal can be voted on and increases the customer hits automatically. VARs can also attach you to Enhancements too, but generally easier to do this yourself since you can explain your needs.
