Mirror Tool

The Mirror tool is often used when the user wants to duplicate a feature/body along a plane of symmetry.

To perform this function, select the feature/body that needs to be duplicated.

Select Body

Then select the mirror function.

Transformation Features bar

Finally, select the Mirroring Element (plane of symmetry) that you wish to mirror it about and click OK


the body should now be mirrored.

It is also possible to mirror just a single feature or group of features of a PartBody rather than the whole thing. To do this, use the “Define In Work Object” option (explained here) to exclude the part that you do not want to mirror.

This has been done below by mirroring the PartBody whilst excluding the hole.
