Argh! copy-flip-attach not working...

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I've just modeled half of my head, but when I select it as a group and select copy/flip/attach, it flips it along the wrong axis everytime so that it connects the left half of my head nose to nose!

 

How do you decide which direction to copy? I'm using AM v13 Alpha, and my help topics won't start, but I'm sure there is an easy explanation for this...

 

Thanks!

Here's a trick that's worked for me in previous versions (not sure about v13, though):

 

1. click on a single CP along the axis you plan to flip across.

 

2. Hit the '/' key to select all CPs. Even though all your CPs are now selected, the sofware remembers which CP you last clicked on.

 

3. Perform "Copy-Flip-Attach." It should flip in the direction you want.

 

My apologies in advance if this trick doesn't work anymore, but it used to...

try making sue that the face is right next to the y line and in the middle of the x line, that always works for me.oh and that all the cps(Control points)are ritgh on the line or right behind,if one cp gose past it just edit the model til every thing is straight.

I like to do what Luckbat said with one critical difference...

 

After selecting your model (or whatever part you want to C/F/A) hold the SHIFT key down and select a spline closest to the side you want to Flip on.

 

Ken Heslip and I both did mini tutorials on C/F/A in the Tutorials forum. There may be others too.

Note that this did not work in one of the latest Alpha versions I tried but I haven't tried in awhile.
