View Full Version : symetry option not working with new geometry

The symetry option worked fine with my model initially until I added additional geometry. The symetry option still works with my initial geometry but not with the new geometry. What am I doing wrong??!!!

If you have done anything to break the symmetry of your mesh, symmetry will no longer work on the non symmetric parts of your mesh. The geometry on the +x side of the grid must be a mirror image of the -x side. You can recover symmetry by deleting the geometry on the -x side and then mirroring the remaining geometry. You will also want to make sure your center points are at x=0, you can use the set value command on those points to make sure.

I agree with bloontz. you have to delete one side and then mirror it over again. otherwise the symmetry mode doesnt detect the changes.

here are the shortcuts if you want to use the set value + mirroring method to fix it:

ctrl v = set value
shift v = mirror (press n for numeric option)

Your suggestions worked perfectly!!!!!!
