Mirror objects

Mirror objects

When you copy or move objects, you can mirror them through a plane that is perpendicular to the work planeplane that the user has chosen in a model and that is currently active for working on in a model view

Newly created, copied, or moved model objects comply with the work plane. For example, shifting the work plane to follow a sloped plane makes it easier to model sloped structures.

and passes through a line you specify.

Note that Tekla Structures cannot create mirrored copies of component properties. The Copy special > Mirror command does not fully mirror objects if they include components that contain, for example, asymmetrically positioned parts.
