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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
