Super Noob here. I am working on an existing mesh and modifying it. In the process I created a new prim then because it was somehow joined to the rest of the model and I wanted to mirror only it in object mode, I deleted the rest of the model and then saved the single prim to its own file. At which point I mirrored it in object mode and I still have no idea if all as for naught or it if is inside-out. Anyway, I saved as a blend and tried to open both files in the same space but they just kept swapping which was open. So I exported my prim and it’s mirror to a dae and imported it into the original file. Yay - success right? No. Because I have three things now. The original model, the thing I created and it’s mirror all in three separate places and I cannot get them to all be in edit mode or all in object mode at the same time. I’ve tried this M thing and gotten my prim and it’s mirror onto a different layer, but still, not the SAME layer and I need to edit them together. Ideally with the original model there so I can use it as a guide for size. I am literally crying in frustration now. This should not be this difficult. Please help
Oh yeah, and I can’t get the original layer to be in anything but object mode now, no more edit mode on that layer.
I’m using 2.79b. I tried 2.8 but while pretty slick, it caused me to immediately lose my marbles because what little I’d learned was suddenly useless.
