Dissolving a Mirror Component Feature

You can dissolve a mirror component feature to make its components independent, so you can move and rotate them.

When you dissolve the feature, you have the option to recreate mates in the top-level assembly.

To dissolve a mirror component feature:

  1. In the FeatureManager design tree, right-click MirrorComponent and click Dissolve Mirrored Component Feature.
  2. In the dialog box, when asked if you want to recreate mates in the top-level assembly, click Yes or No.

    MirrorComponent disappears from the FeatureManager design tree. The components appear in the tree like any other components. For opposite-hand versions, the external references to the seed components are maintained.
