When using the mirror command for frame members, the default behaviour is to reuse Standard content and Factory parts, therefore not creating a “pure” mirrored version. Sometimes, this can affect the way end treatments are created in the result.
If what is needed is an exact mirrored copy, this can be done by expanding the Mirror components dialog and unchecking the "reuse" box. It is also possible to mirror only specific members and reuse the others.
The result will be this:
As opposed to this (when reusing):
The downside of mirroring is the way it is reflected in the BOM. It will be using the standard.ipt template when created and will be counted as "each" instead of using the length value.
This can be corrected by changing the Base QTY to use the G_L parameter.
