 V11.21 Sketcher. Mirror command not applying constraints
19-09-2005 10:24 . am | View his/her posts only
In V 11.21. Using the 'Sketcher', I mirror a 'line' about another line. Unlike previous verions, in my and my clooegues program the mirror command does not apply any constraints to the copied geometry. Therefore if I move the original, by say a dimension change, the mirrored part doe not update, unlike previous VX versions where it did.

Is this a bug or am I missing a hidden input?

Mirror in V11-4 seems fine. see the simple file attached. If you modify the dimensions, the mirror follows.

OK, draw a vertical line in the sketcher.
Draw a circle with centre on the line and circmference pasing through top point of line.
Draw a circle as above with circumference passing through bottom point of vertical line.

Now draw a lone tangent to each circle on the left hand side.
Constrain circles to be same size.

Now mirror the left, now vertical line.

DOes it apply the mirror constraints?, this example in 11.21 does not.

Hi

v11.40 does not insert the mirror constraint. This looks like a regression, going back to v10.94. I shall raise a PCR.
