I want to modify mirrored parts. But, I don't want to change parent components. Is it possible to do so, in SolidWorks. Mirrored components are already placed in assembly. If their is any possible way to do this, please help me.
I'd advise creating a second configuration of your Part. Make the modifications to the new configuration and suppress them in the original. Go back to your Assembly and change the mirrored Parts to the second configuration and leave the original Part as the original configuration.
When you Mirror a part from a part the information feed is from the original Part to the Mirror Part, it is only one direction. Doing it that way you can change your Mirrored Part however you want and it won't affect the original part..
Thanks for all replies.
But Finally I have right solution.
First we just need to create an opposite hand version part and click on next button arrow in property manager.
and check the break link to original part tab under link button.
this will create a new part.
Which is basically what John advised you.........
yes but break link is important.
without it u can't change your original part without affecting mirrored components.
