Mirror without duplicate using `MCOMMAND_MIRROR`



  • Hello guys,
    It's something weird with MCOMMAND_MIRROR in S22.

    This script (thanks to m_adam) duplicates and mirrors the object.

    import c4d
    
    
    def main():
        # Checks if selected object is valid
        if op is None:
            raise ValueError("op is none, please select one object.")
    
        # Defines some general settings, take care MDATA_MIRROR_VALUE, MDATA_MIRROR_SYSTEM and MDATA_MIRROR_PLANE
        settings = c4d.BaseContainer()
        settings[c4d.MDATA_MIRROR_DUPLICATE] = True
        settings[c4d.MDATA_MIRROR_SELECTIONS] = True
        settings[c4d.MDATA_MIRROR_ONPLANE] = True
        settings[c4d.MDATA_MIRROR_WELD] = True
        settings[c4d.MDATA_MIRROR_TOLERANCE] = 0.01
    
        # Corresponds to MDATA_MIRROR_VALUE, MDATA_MIRROR_SYSTEM and MDATA_MIRROR_PLANE
        value = 1000.0
        system = 0 # 0 = Object, 1 = World
        plane = 1 # 0 = XY, 1 = ZY, 2 = XZ
    
        if not 0 <= system < 2:
            raise ValueError("System can only be 0 or 1")
    
        # Buffer position vector
        pos = c4d.Vector()
    
        # Calculates Local (Object) coordinates
        if system == 0:
            globalMatrix = op.GetMg()
            if plane == 0:
                pos = globalMatrix.v3
            elif plane == 1:
                pos = globalMatrix.v1
            elif plane == 2:
                pos = globalMatrix.v2
    
            settings[c4d.MDATA_MIRROR_POINT] = globalMatrix.off + pos * value
            settings[c4d.MDATA_MIRROR_VECTOR] = pos
    
        # Calculates World coordinates
        elif system == 1:
            if plane == 0:
                pos = c4d.Vector(0.0, 0.0, 1.0)
            elif plane == 1:
                pos = c4d.Vector(1.0, 0.0, 0.0)
            elif plane == 2:
                pos = c4d.Vector(0.0, 1.0, 0.0)
    
            settings[c4d.MDATA_MIRROR_POINT] = pos * value
            settings[c4d.MDATA_MIRROR_VECTOR] = pos
    
        # Send the Modeling Operation
        res = c4d.utils.SendModelingCommand(c4d.MCOMMAND_MIRROR,
                                            [op],
                                            c4d.MODELINGCOMMANDMODE_ALL,
                                            settings,
                                            doc)
    
        c4d.EventAdd()
    
    
    if __name__ == "__main__":
        main()
    
    
    

    However, if I change

    settings[c4d.MDATA_MIRROR_DUPLICATE] = True
    

    to

    settings[c4d.MDATA_MIRROR_DUPLICATE] = False
    

    Script doesn't make anything.
    In R20 it works.
    Is it ok? Is there any way to just mirror the object without duplicate it?

    P.S. Also, if I use Mirror (https://help.maxon.net/index.html#5633) with unchecked Duplicate Points everything works (in S22).

  • hi,

    this look like a bug, I've opened a bug report
