It's not something that I think, everybody's going to use in an essentials course. However, when we're looking at the mirror feature, I do think that mirroring a solid can be an efficient way to do design. So, we'll look at that during this movie.

On the screen, you see our sample file. And what our sample file is representing, is a one quarter of what our final model will look like. Because the part I put together here is symmetric. We're going to use the mirror feature, to mirror the other half of the part, and then we're going to mirror the mirror to make the part complete. Let's take a look. You can find the...
