Im currently making a robot arm which consists of many different parts. I finished the left arm in terms of modelling, rigging and basic materials. In order to get started working on the bigger project this belongs to I want to make a first working version of the arms, so I wanted to mirror the left arm over to the right side and redo the rigging for that side. The rig is just the regular metarig with everything but the arms removed, so it already had both sides.
However when using the regular mirror tool, the left arm only gets partially mirrored correctly over to the right side. Everything seems to be in the right place, but the lower part of the arm has messed up rotations ( see fingers and lower part of the arm in the attached picture ).
I used the 3D cursor right in the middle as the mirror point and the regular mirror option when looking for “mirror” in the search box.
Images of the problem:
Does anyone know a way of doing this without me breaking the rotations like that or a way of fixing this perfectly? Id rather not manually adjust this, since it wouldnt be a “perfect” mirror anymore.
