Converting a weldment that contains a mirrored part to desecrate parts

Question asked by Patrick Brown on Mar 12, 2014

Hello the very helpfull people in solidworks land..


I have a weldment which has within it a mirrored part...


clearly the orriginal idea was that the two sides of the frame where the same..


but now i need to change one side but not the other...


so the original mirrored parts are all interwoven in a higherlevel assembly and so just recreating the new part and breaking the mates is not my first idea..


but open to suggestions...


and i can provide more info if needed..


but i suppose my question boils down to, can i convert a mirrored item in a weldment to a set of standalone parts in the same single weldment and not distroy all my currentl mates..
