    I have used FreeShip to draw the hull for a model boat. I have exported an STL file and cut the mould for the port side of the boat. I can't work out how to create a mirror image for the starboard side and export that. Can anyone tell me how to do this?

    I can mirror the port side to get a complete hull and then export the whole boat as an STL file. My CNC machine that will cut the mould is not big enough to do the whole thing so I have to make the mould in two halves.

    Thanks in advance,

      Steve (numbaoneman@aol.com) answered this query on the Yahoo group. He suggested:
      > Aha! Eureka! Yay!...Mirror the Port side, delselect all then highlight
      > everything on the port side and DELETE. Export the file then undo
      > everything you just did to get the original file back or simply close
      > without saving.

      This works for me, thanks Steve.
