Thanks for the tutorial, It took me a while to figure this out.


But what is the point of having a mirror tool, when you cant merge thetwo halves?

In my case I wanted to make a symmetrical MultiSweep. I drew the profile curves and a rail curve. Mirrored them and I tried to use multi sweep. That didn't work because the profile curves had not merged.

In the end I used mirror on the multisweep, but also those are not merged. Is there a way to get one piece, apart of drawing the whole thing symmetrical?


Would be nice to have
