How to load a mirror object into the scene?

Post by bchen » 29 Oct 2019, 17:41

Hi, may I ask how can we load a mirror object into the scene? I saw the documentation here: http://www.coppeliarobotics.com/helpFil ... irrors.htm. However, I am not able to find "Mirror" option under Add. Could you please kindly instructed?

Thank you!!

Hello,

mirrors are unfortunately not supported anymore. At least until we have replaced the rendering engine. Sorry about that.

Cheers

Thank you for your reply!

Do you by any chance know if there is any walk around to get the mirror in V-REP? It is a very important component for our research project.

Cheers!

Hello again,

ok, we'll try to add an API function for that. Next release should be out in 2-3 weeks. With following you will be able to add a mirror with dimensions x,y:

Code: Select all

handle=sim.auxFunc('createMirror',{x,y})
Cheers
