Creating a mirror of an component


New member
I would like to mirror a component in an assembly without having to create a new part? Since my part is symmetrical I do not want to create a new part. I know that I can reinsert the component, but I wanted to know whether it is possible to do what I want to do {Mirror}.
Follow the steps as follows - create an appropriate "mirror axis", then copy the component then use paste special then check "Apply Move/Rotate transformations to copies" then select the "mirror axis" created in step 1 and rotate 180 deg. Thats it you are done.
