I am deriving a part that is a mirror image of the part. I want the geometry to change between the parts, but I have an emboss on the surface that mirrors with the solid. How do I exclude this from the derived part

Solved! Go to Solution.
The derive will mirror the whole part as you are finding so the workaround will be to put the emboss on the derived/mirrored part rather than the original.
Hope that helps
In trying to understand what you are describing, you have one part (A) that is a mirror of another part (B), and you want the features between parts A and B to change together so that they are always the same or are you saying you want them to change independantly? Just trying to figure out if derived is the way you really want to go.
If you provided an image of what you are trying to do and which feature you want excluded that would be most helpful.

Attach your file(s) here if you can.
Sorry this is the other file -2 is derived from -1. But I want to segregate the emboss, i.e. suppress it from -2 and recreate it in -2 correctly
I assume you also want it to remain in the parent part.
I think you will have to extrude a rectangle to fill the material and then recreate the Emboss.
BTW - Sketch4 is missing a constraint, be careful.
For what it's worth, when I have done parts like this in the past I create the base part that will be used for both finished parts and then I derive that part into both of the finished components and add all of the extra relevant features. Start with Part A and then derive into parts 1 and 2 so both finished parts are derived from the base part. This way there is no creating a feature to remove another feature, which I hate to do.
