Real Mirror

shortcut QWERTY xr, QWERTZ yr, only in object mode

The Real Mirror tool is used to turn the results of the mirror modifer into real geometry.

This is done for two main reasons:

  1. To get a proper origin for the mirrored part, so object space texturing works as expected.
  2. To mirror custom normals, which the mirror modifier can't do.

Selection

One or multiple objects, with one or multiple mirror modifiers, that are visible and renderable and have at least one mirror axis checked.
