Symmetry side with Knife tool does not work?
on Jul 4, 2018 at 5:12:56 am

Hi-
I'm fairly new to modeling and am only just getting started on what I'd like to be a dragon.
Starting with the head I begin with a single 4 polygon cube, I make it editable and delete half of it with the loop knife tool, Optimize so the points are correct.
(It's also under a Null) apply the object under the Symmetry tool, and change the "mirror plane" to XY
It is mirrored- however when using the Knife Tool (loop) the cuts are not effected on the symmetrical side.
Is this possible to do without a plugin? what am I missing here.....

What you are describing (or what I think you are describing) works here. Need more info, the scenefile perhaps.

it's definitely working here, it can't not work I think, since the symmetry side is a direct copy. You won't see it unless you select the Symmetry object after the cut or change the display mode from Gouraud Shading to Gouraud Shading (Lines) - or any of the (Lines) modes - or are you meaning something different?
