Mirror Style

Choose between 3 mirror plane options: Hidden, Fixed or Auto scale

Use Mirror

By sketching on one side of the Mirror, a duplicate of the object will show up on the other side.

Snap control points

While editing in Mirror mode control points will snap to the mirror as you move them close to the axis. This is very helpful when joining the ends of the geometry across the middle.

Bake Mirrored

Edit one side independently by selecting the Bake Mirrored option in the edit panel. This will make each object independently movable and editable.

Mirror existing geometry

Every geometry in the sketch can be mirrored across the Y axis. This is useful if you want to mirror only specific geometry in the sketch.

  1. Grab the geometry and select the Blue button on your non-drawing hand
  1. Switch the Mirror toggle on the edit panel to Mirrored over world axis

Mirror multiple objects

You can select multiple objects and switch the mirroring on or off on the Multi-edit panel.
