The Symmetry command mirrors curves and surfaces, makes the mirrored half tangent to the original, and then when the original object is edited, the mirrored half updates to match the original.
Note: History recording must be on when the command is run.
|1.||Select a curve or surface.|
There is a difference in behavior when you select the curve before starting the command.
|●||If you select the curve first, the start of the curve is changed.|
|●||If you select the curve after you start the command, the end of the curve nearest to where you select is changed.|
|2.||Pick the start of the symmetry plane.
This is similar to the Mirror command.
|3.||Pick the end of the symmetry plane.|
Determines how the continuity between the mirrored objects is handled.
The mirrored curve or surface will connect to the original with G0 continuity.
The mirrored curve or surface will connect to the original with G2 continuity.
Store the connection between a command's input geometry and the result, so that when the input geometry changes, the result updates accordingly.
