Mirror a sheetmetal part to exclude a feature (company logo)

Mirror a sheetmetal part to exclude a feature (company logo)

Hi All,

I have a sheetmetal part that I want to mirror and keep the geometry dependant, but for the mirrored part to exclude the logo feature.

Scenario:

Part1_LH is the original part is a left hand configuration. This part has the company logo on it with a 'L'  handing callout for the left  hand configuration assembly etched in to the surface.. Part1_RH is the mirrored part and is a right hand configuration, but the company logo and the L callout is reversed.

 

What I want is to mirror the part and keep it dependant and have the logo on the mirrored part in the correct orientation.

 

Is there a way to exclude the logo and handing letter from the mirror part function so that I can add the logo and the 'R' handing callout onto the mirrored part?

 

I know that I can convert the original part to a solid  as a quilt, and mirror that part , then fill in the mirrored logo and re-apply the logo to the mirrored part but I want to keep the parts in sheet metal and dependant.

 

Any help with achieving this would be greatly appreciated.

 

Using Creo 8.0.3.0

 

Thanks.

Review the solution shown in this thread. It is capable of controlling your left and right versions of the part. Put the logos etc. in the derivative parts of the master model for the L&R versions. To be clear the master model would not have any features unique to the L&R models.
