Flat Pattern of a mirrored part


New member
I have created a sheet metal part that is the left side of a machine. I mirrored the part because I need the right side to be mirrored. Even though the flat patterns are identical, I added one feature to the right side. Can I get a flat pattern of the mirror for a detail print?
Once you are in your mirrored part you can simply add sheet metal to the part and flatten it or this could simply be done if you create the two sides in the same part, with different configurations.
