Work before mirror and circular pattern


I'm designing something that is symmetrical. And to get the final object I need to mirror and do a circular pattern:

It is possible to edit the first piece and it mirror and do a circular pattern automatic? So i don't need to ctrl+z and mirror and pattern every time i want to see the final result?

Thanks :)

You could extrude the first sketch, then do a mirror feature, followed by a pattern feature. This would replace the mirroring and patterning in the sketch. However, you will have to rebuild the model to see the changes. You will also have to add some lines to the first sketch to make it a valid extrude feature.
