MIRRORED OR REFLECTED OBJECTS

Recommended Posts

I am drawing a duplex with Home Designer Pro 2015. I have drawn the left side exactly how I want it but am having trouble reflecting or mirroring the right side while retaining all the objects on the left side. I want to duplicate the right side to be same as left side. When I attempt to reflect for the right side the objects I'm reflecting disappears on the left side.

Thanks for your help.

How are you mirroring?

 

The simple way is using Edit Area.

 

Use Edit Area to select the left side, copy / reflect about object (party wall or cad line etc).

Software, any software is pre-programmed in terms of the visual results possible. I have observed that Chief does a reasonable job in terms of a single mirrored object's reflections but angled or opposing mirrors usually reflect only a dull dark grey appearance. I am not a software engineer or Architect but this is what I have observed to be true. You might call or write Chief Architect Tech Support for a more detailed answer.

I tried what you said. Everything reflects to the right side but the left side area or objects I reflected from disappears.

Are you making a copy before reflecting?

 

They are not disappearing, they are being moved.

Yes,

I select Edit Area

Then I select area or objects I want reflected or mirrored.

Then I copy.

Then I select Object Reflect on Cad line I established.

 

I will like at the YouTube video you suggested.

Thanks for your help.

Okay, the video helped.

I was only copying instead of doing a copy/paste.

Thanks again.
