In Creo Parametric, you can mirror selected features or the entire model geometry about a planar reference. The Mirror operation in Creo Parametric 5.0 has been enhanced resulting in faster definition or redefinition of the Mirror feature.
You can use one of the following methods to select geometry to mirror:
- To mirror one or a set of features, select the feature(s) in the model tree or on the model.
· To mirror the entire model, select the model name in the model tree.
Then, to mirror features or the entire model, select or create the plane that you want to mirror about.
A feature collector has been added in the References panel, which allows editing and will alert you if features are missing. The following images show the References panel when selecting features or the model, respectively:
When mirroring features, the new Reapply Mirror check box option can be selected to remove missing features from the definition. When the references of mirrored features need to be redefined, these features are listed in the Mirrored features collector with a ‘mirror fail’ status next to the feature name.
