I'm always struggling with the mirror feature.
My task is to model a symmetric part, so I start by modelling half of the part in "Part Design" Workbench, and then try to mirror everything.
I created the attached demo, where I have half of the part with a cut-out, chamfer and fillets. Now I want to mirror everything about the XZ-plane.
But the mirror feature only works on the pad, not any of the other operations.
I tried to make a "Fusion" using the "Part" Workbench, but then first, the part looks all wrong, and the mirror operation in "Part Design" does not work on the Fuison object.
I don't want to Copy & Paste a dumb copy of my object, but I want to retain an "intelligent" link between the mirrored half of the part, and the original model.
1) How do I it?
2) What kind of "container" or "grouping" do I need to do add?
3) Why can't I select the whole body as the source for the mirror operation?
- This is what I wanted. (Here I had to fake it by using a tessellated mesh, just for the picture.)
