Mirror

Whenever you are working with geometry that's symmetrical keep the Mirror command in the back of your mind. Sometimes making a mirrored copy can quite literally cut your work in half. I'm going to click my Open icon and we are going to look inside the Chapter 9 folder within the Exercise Files directory and I'm going to come down and we are going to open up drawing number 5. This is our Mirror Drawing. So let me select this and click Open. Now I have got an abstract example on my screen. I'm going to use this to show you how the Mirror command works.

Now hopefully you can identify that this is one half of the wine glass. Now it's not the best looking wine glass in the world but this is just an abstract example. The thing I want to reinforce is that we don't have to draw both sides of the wine glass. Since it's symmetrical I have already created the left side. I'm going to use this left side to create the right side. We are going to do that by using the Mirror command...
