I just came across somethings that got my attention in a couple of ways. First is/are those mysterious Errors that appear when you know you did everything EXACTLY right. That SU is out to destroy your sanity and torment you to the ends of time. Stay calm and get in the habit of using the Undo option and Start saving copies of your work as you model it, or build scenes .
This will allow you to trace your steps back and you will then see EXACTLY where you screwed up. Speaking for myself I was so worked up on getting it right I had no clue I went out of sequence or just missed a step. Also you are blind to catching these errors from lack of experience. If it is not right you are off on a point and SU added a edge or complete face because of this. Learning to catch your mistakes is part of your growing.
I have this one for an example, and 6 months ago would have been running to the forums for answers or a technical issue. As to why it wont work… I have to flip it in the green direction in order for it to be flipped in the red???
I should be able to move/copy it 28" on the red axes, while it is highlighted. R-click and select Flip Along ~ Groups red. It wont and until you (I) went back and realized why SU was doing this, because of what I had done. Being it is a intersected rotated copy of itself. I traced it in Front View so the first copy was push/pulled along the green axes and its saved part copied/pasted in place with the second half. The rotated copy that is running on the red axes. SU is “holding” its green axes position and I am assuming it to be red. It would be IF I started it out that way. So this is an example of how your inexperience frustrates the hell out of you and one good thing about it is. It shows your progressing. If you need help ask but dont limit yourself by not taking sometime and find out on your own. It is the best thing you can learn…for yourself. I threw in the file if you want to try it for yourselves…Peace…
