Parametric Mirror & Delete body?

Hi Guys,

I have a table drive multibody part, the table suppresses or unsuppresses parts as required to match the excel table parameters, this all works great. Now I need a RH version of my LH model. I have successfully been able to Mirror the entire multibody part and all its bodies, and then Delete body on all the LH bodyies to create a functioing RH multibody file.


The problem comes when I go back tot he excel table and make adjustments, the number of parts changes, or some parts are swaped for others via suppression (normal and understanable) this makes my Mirroe and delete body functions fail for the RH parts :-(


So my question is, is there some kind of parametric way to mirror Everything in a multibody part file, regardless if the part count changes? Basically mirror the part, not the bodies?


Then I need to be able to again parametrically delete body on all the originals "BEFORE" the miror so I am left with only RH bodies in my part, again regardless if the original part count changes...
