I can only get it to mirror it : about one plane at a time? anyone know how I can do this? : : I have a mold for a forging, the feature is in the upper right corner : I want to mirror in don to the lower left corner, to do this I want to : mirror it about datum 1 and them dataum 2, Pro won't let me, I tryed : makin a plane at 45 degree and wasn't correct please help?
One of the tricks with Pro/e is to create features so that you can do things with them down the road. So, for example, if you had created the lower right feature referencing an on-the-fly 45 degree datum, I'm sure you could have either mirrored using it or done a rotational pattern, 2 instances, 180 degrees apart. You can't mirror about the 45 if the feature doesn't reference that datum. So, redefine or reroute the feature and as the sketcher 'Top' reference, use your 45 degree datum. Then you should be able to mirror it in one go.
