I’m making a box, where each side is made up of 3 pieces, stacked on each other (different types of wood). Initially, I had a side with only two pieces stacked, where I did a copy/move and flip. The initial 2 piece sets worked like they are suppose to, i.e., when I work on the left side, the right side reflects the same changes. After adding a third piece on top of the left side, copy/move and flipping it to the right side, I can’t get the right top side to “sync” to the left top side when making changes. Any suggestions? Thanks.

was the right side made into a component prior to move/copy flipping it to make the left side?

Yes and no; I erased the left side and right side, then added the new piece on the left side WHILE in the edit mode. Then moved/copied and flipped…worked like a champ. Thanks!!
