I am having problems mirroring extrusion bosses across a plane in my model. If i mirror the body it works but not when i try to mirror the features. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?
Since it works mirroring the bodies I don't understand the problem. That's why there are options to mirror a body or feature.
Add file or some images how you build the bosses. Do you have rads or chamfers etc?
Did you use 'up to Body', 'up to surface' or similar to create the extrusion? Mirrors of such extrusions often don't work. That said, I find mirrored bodies far more stable anyhow, I would recommend going with that.
Hi James,I think you have extruded the feature as up to face/surface. Id so, that will cause problem like you said.
So, extrude that feature with value like 5 mm and try to mirror then.
If you extrude up to vertex/point, then you will get this error again. My suggestion is to extrude with value and mirror then.
Hope that will solve the problem.
