View Full Version : [LW 2018] problems with symmetry

02-01-2018, 12:44 PM
Symmetry works very inconsistently, sometimes selection is not mirrored, also many operations are not mirrored (e.g. slicing) even if polys on both sides are selected. Tripling usually works, subdividing - sometimes. I tried to increase symmetry tolerance, but with result. Any advice? Or should I use mirroring instead?

That's true, symmetry is far from perfection.

In Documentation is written:
"Symmetrical Modeling: Many of the Modeling tools will work in Symmetry mode. Most of the Modify menu tools work fine. Others such as bevel or smooth shift also work. Some tools such as Bandsaw do not work in Symmetry mode. In such a case you may have to use the tool on one side then use the Mirror tool to make sure the changes are done on both sides of the X Axis."

And in LW 2018:
"Symmetry fixes
More tools now respect the Symmetry state in Modeler - Edit Edges, Lattice, Knife, and BandGlue."
