Mirror Object Option in new Cura ?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Mirror Object Option in new Cura ?

Is it possible to get a mirror object in Cura ?

So for example if I have half a model car, that i can simple mirror the object on a axis and then i have a complete car for printing.

is that a possible idea for a future Cura ?

Best wishes.

Ian :-)

There are these tiny "mirror X/Y/Z" buttons at the bottom of the 3D window ;-)

Those X/Y/Z Buttons don't Mirror the Object, they Rotate it. Mirror means to 'duplicate' the object, like looking into a mirror. You would have 2 objects on the table after you 'Mirror' it, only complete opposites. It would be nice to have a "Mirror" control and also a "Move", so you could locate the object anywhere on the table you like, to print and to adjust for Mirror.

Semantics.

Anyhow, the project planner can do this. Place the same object twice and mirror one of them.

With the same buttons as in the normal view, but they are located on the right below the object list.
