Mirror: Copies & instances

Postby adarsh3D » Thu Sep 22, 2005 5:37 am

dear sascha,

In 3DS Max, there is an option, which allows you to create 'instances' when mirroring.

When you mirror an object, you get an option either to create a 'Copy' or an 'Instance' of the original object.

You must be knowing the difference but just in case,
Instance: changes in original object reflected in mirrored object
Copy: mirrored object is totally independent of original object.

Is something like this possible in Jpatch.
If it is already available, please let me know (I am using JPatch 0.4)

Its not (yet) possible - the "cloned" parts in JPatch are independent objects.
There is, however, an "auto-mirror" feature that eases modeling of symmetric objects.
