mirror copy problem

In assembly mode when I use

feature

copy

mirror



and then I select a group and a plane to mirror about the whole group is mirror-copied but the color of the copied group becomes black. This color indicates what?

I haven't seen online help for such things.

Please discuss.

Is this something that you can reset by removing a color setting from the group? Or is this more of a graphics anomaloy that can't be corrected?



Does the black color remain when the model is opened in a new session of Pro/E? If not, you may want to upgrade your graphics drivers... (by the way, I've never seen this problem).

Hi Brian,



you can't reset by removing a color setting. And the black color remain when the model is opened in new session. So I don't think its graphics problem.

If you haven't seen it see it now.

Looks like a bug to me. I couldn't find any reference to this problem on PTC's website.



I'd call it in to PTC and see what they say.

I had the same problem a while back with colors in assemblies changing not just to black, but to some obscure color that I had never chosen.



It normally happened when I would import a part into the assembly - I got really ticked off, because I would have to rechange the colors to back to what they were.



I found out that I was changing surface (not part) colors of parts that I had accidentally included a wrong surface to place a granite surface on.



After removing the granite surface, all my colors stopped going wacko on me...

It may help perhaps to change clip(View -Display Settings - Visibilities) from 0 to 1% (move the bar just a little to right).



I know that this is not very good solution but it may help you until the bug is fixed by PTC.

p.s. We will open a call regarding this.
