I was following the instruction of Blender Guru to realize a chair, I'm stuck in the part of mirroring, because the mirrored object apper to be in the wrong position , in my case in the other part of the origin (look at the image, it's more clever) Maybe is something really simple, but I don't know what I'm missing. I have alse tried to do what it's written there: Mirrored object is misaligned when compared to its source object enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ Hi, my purpose is that the two pieces are close enought to look as one object $\endgroup$ – bl4nk Dec 26 '20 at 15:20
  • $\begingroup$ it seems to work as it is supposed to, here, the origin is the center of the mirror. Sometimes it is tilted compared to the global axis but it's because the local axis has been rotated $\endgroup$ – moonboots Dec 26 '20 at 15:24
  • $\begingroup$ Ok, I do it in the wrong way, I must apply the mirror before cutting the original piece, but why? $\endgroup$ – bl4nk Dec 26 '20 at 15:54
  • $\begingroup$ what do you mean by cutting the original piece? I think you're on the right way, follow the tutorial $\endgroup$ – moonboots Dec 26 '20 at 15:55

I was doing the operation in the wrong order, the right one is:

  1. Add mirror modifier
  2. Cut the part that you want to be mirrored in 2 half
  3. Delete the vertices of one half

I swapped the first 2 steps
