Mirror Object Option in new Cura ?

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
