Same Part

RJVRJV Member Posts: 14
Hi Guys,

I'd like to ask about the part that mirrored, the details/properties are the same but in BOM the 2 parts are appearing separately.
I can't insert the same part studio, it should be mirrored (Left/Right).
the difference is just the installation of this Rubber pinch weld.
I want to put them together in BOM. Is there ever a query or discussion like this here?

    Why did you mirror it if it's the same part?

    Delete the mirror feature. Assemble the single rubber part at both locations in the asm. Now the BOM will be correct.

    You can't use the Left side to RS.

    Two parts that are physically different on screen (not in real life) are seen as different parts. There is no solution to this issue yet.
