Iam trying to mirror a flexible hinge in a small assy, the mirror works but the mates dont seem mirror over.
I have attached the files its the bottom hinge thats the problem.
Thanks in advance
I am not surprised that hinge mates don't mirror.
There are many unwritten rules in SW and this may be one of them.
From memory, hinge mates are in the advanced category and thus a little less robust than basic mates.
I'm not sure that most mates will "mirror" correctly. Some obviously will, as in the example of a top plane mate when the mirror plane is the front or right plane. But concentric mates almost never do.
But, they are very eay to edit and change. I, too, find this inconvenient, but as long as I know the conflict I can deal with it. Mirroring is a great feature even if the mates don't mirror as well.
Sorry, but you'll have to add the mates manually. As stated above, hinge mates are in the advanced or mechanical category, they also cant be copied with the ''copy with mates' tool / function
