View Full Version : Symmetry not working with Cell Phone?

Hi all,

I am on Chap. 11 on Inside Lightwave 8 and starting the Cell Phone.
It says draw a box and type in the values given which one of them is wrong.
The numeric box makes me type in a 9 for segments just to get 8 and when I go to adjust the box to the shape of the background, SYMMETRY will not work.
Yet I can start a new project and make a box and turn on symmetry and it works perfect. Just not with these values being entered in the numeric box.
Any ideas?
Thanks

Once your object has lost it's symmetry, you can no longer use symmetry. So if you draw a box that is not centered correctly, you can not use symmetry on it.

I worked on that tutorial and did not have a problem. You may want to double check that you are following things step-by-step. It could also be that I saw the problem and just worked around it.
