3D symmetry – operation of the TFLEX CAD system which allows a user to symmetrically reflect selected 3D objects with respect to a given plane. 3D construction elements, operations, bodies, 3D fragments, faces can be selected as source objects for creating the symmetry (objects of symmetry).
When creating the symmetry of operations, it is possible to automatically combine the created copy with the source operation as well as use the move mode (when the source bodies are removed upon copying).
Limitations of Symmetry Operation
When creating and editing symmetry operations, to avoid getting improper results, there are the following limitations:
•If at least one of the source objects of symmetry was used for creating the body (including 3D weldment), then the mode Move will be locked;
•If at least one of the objectsresults of the operation was used for defining any other object of the TFLEX CAD model, then upon editing the symmetry operation, the option of modifying the collection of the source objects will be locked, as well as the option of toggling on/off the mode of copying with union (for symmetry of operations);
These limitations are related to the symmetry of all types except the symmetry of faces.
Creation of Symmetry
For creating the operation of symmetry, these steps have to be followed:
1.Select the source objects of symmetry;
2.Select the plane of symmetry;
3.Select the parameters of symmetry (for example, the mode of symmetry);
4.Finish creation by pressing in the automenu or in the command's parameters window.
