Parameters

MirrorPlane
Reference plane or planar face about which to mirror the components
ComponentsToInstance
Array of seed components with which to create copy mirror components; only valid if ComponentsToMirror is null
ComponentOrientations

Array of swMirrorComponentOrientation_e values; valid only if ComponentsToInstance is not null

OrientAboutCenterOfMass
True to orient the mirror components about the center of mass, false to orient them about the bounding box center; valid only if ComponentsToInstance is not null
ComponentsToMirror
Array of seed components with which to create opposite-hand mirror components; only valid if ComponentsToInstance is null
CreateDerivedConfigurations
True to create a derived configuration of the mirror components in the original assembly, false to create new part files; valid only if ComponentsToMirror is not null
MirroredComponentFilenames
Array of mirror part file names; valid only if CreateDerivedConfigurations is false and NameModifierType is swMirrorComponentNameModifier_e.swMirrorComponentName_Prefix or swMirrorComponentNameModifier_e.swMirrorComponentName_Suffix
NameModifierType
Mirror part file name modifier type as defined in swMirrorComponentNameModifier_e; valid only if CreateDerivedConfigurations is false
NameModifier
Prefix or suffix to apply to file names of mirror parts; valid only if NameModifierType is swMirrorComponentNameModifier_e.swMirrorComponentName_Prefix or swMirrorComponentNameModifier_e.swMirrorComponentName_Suffix and CreateDerivedConfigurations is false
MirroredComponentFileLocation
Directory where to save the mirror parts; valid only if CreateDerivedConfigurations is false
ImportOptions

Mirror transfer options as defined in swMirrorPartOptions_e

BreakLinks
True to break the links between the mirror parts and the original parts, false to keep the links
PreserveZAxis
True to mirror the Z-axis orientation, false to flip the Z-axis orientation in the mirror part

Return Value

Array of mirror components
