Including Custom Properties in a Mirrored Assembly

You can include custom properties when you create an opposite-hand mirror assembly or subassembly. Custom properties include global properties and configuration-specific properties.

A link is established between the mirrored assembly and the original assembly. Changes to the custom properties in the original assembly are included in the mirrored assembly. You cannot edit custom properties in the mirrored assembly.

To include custom properties in a mirrored assembly:

  1. Open an assembly that has a custom property.
  2. Click Mirror Components (Assembly toolbar) or Insert > Mirror Components.
  3. In the PropertyManager, create a mirror pattern.
    Click Create opposite hand version in Step 2: Set Orientation to continue through the PropertyManager.
  4. In Step 4: Import Features, under Transfer, select Custom Properties.
    If you select Break link to original part under Link, changes made in the original assembly are not included in the mirrored assembly.
  5. Click to create the mirrored component.
