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..

 

thanks

 

Pb
