I made my first sculpt model and I used a mirror modifier. But then I applied the mirror modifier, because I got a strange edge on the mirror line in sculpt mode. Now I modeled it, but it still mirrors the model, what in the beginning was good, but sometime I want to do asymmetrical things.

What did I wrong? Many thanks for your help!! Happy modeling :D

model + modifiers

    $\begingroup$ Does it mirror when you sculpt only? Maybe you need to disable the symmetry in tools tab? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, but I looked in the options menu there and the X mirror option wasn't checked, but the model still mirroring :/ Is this a bug? I would prefer, that I have done something wrong :/ $\endgroup$ Apr 9, 2015 at 17:48

You need to disable symmetry lock. It only happens in sculpt mode, the option to turn it off or on can be found under tools > symmetry lock.

Click the shaded option to disable, x by default.

Don't worry, you did nothing wrong
