Valid BRL-CAD Primitive
Name of new object to be created
Axis to mirror across

Return Value(s)[edit]

No Return Values for this command.


The "mirror" command creates new_object by duplicating old_object and reflecting it along the indicated axis. If old_object is a primitive shape, then a new shape is created, with parameters adjusted to accomplish the mirror operation. If old_object is a combination, then new_object will simply be a copy of old_object with all of its members’ matrices set to perform the appropriate reflection.


mged> mirror -x shape1 shape1_mirror
Make a copy of shape1, name it shape1_mirror, and adjust its parameters so that it is a mirror image of shape1 across the yz plane.
