Why the "mirror" function is not available once a model has a NURBS surface?

There are two different types of mirror operations in Studio.

 

One is the Exact Surfaces>Template>Mirror Template.

 

 

The Mirror Template can only be used when a NURBS surface is not present. This is because the template is used to generate a new NURBS and it would need to be removed if you wanted to create new NURBS surface. A way around this would be to duplicate the object in Tools>Create>New Object>Duplicate and then create a new surface using the mirrored template.

 

The other type of mirror is in the Tools tab called Mirror Model.

 

 

This creates a symmetry by duplicating the structure of an object on the other side of a mirroring plane.
