Re: Coplanar issues again?

Thanks for the pics, but it's hard to diagnose problems without a file (and version info.)

Can't picture what you want. Include a file and maybe a (gimped picture for further help.)

Do not choose Pad or any other feature, choose body, else you'll have problems.

Instead use Part mirror on the body object.

Re: Error BRep_API: command not done

I can't really tell what it is you're trying to build, but I see a lot of symmetry in your sketches and that usually means the model can be reduced to a fraction of the whole. In general the KISS principle works best for 3D models, when a change is required, the fewer places that change has to be ap...

Re: Sketch inverted after carbon copy in another sketch

You did select a coplanar surface for the sketch, but it is inverted by 180 degrees.

You should not attach to solid geometry if you wish to have stable models.
