Clone and Mirror, Rotate, Merge Assemblies
Questions are good. I got a great question in an email last night.
“I am trying program and couldn’t find a way of rotating a door inside of an assembly, is it really possible? If I wanted to do a “strange” design and create two adjacent doors with 90 degree correlation, then how do I do it?”
Well let me tell you about the business man looking for a one armed economist. Why? Because every economist he ever listened to said “on one hand…. on the other hand…”.
On one hand you can’t rotate a door or drawer within an assembly. At least not right now.
On the other hand this video LINK TO VIDEO CLICK THIS show you how to get around that.
A few steps.
- Put door in assembly.
- Clone (or clone and mirror) that assembly.
- Rotate the cloned assembly 90 degrees.
- Merge the two assemblies.
Presto chango — all done.
