Learn how to use the Sketch Mirror feature, which creates mirrored entities about a line.
- [Instructor] When sketching symmetric features,…it's always a good idea to use…the mirror feature in sketch.…So you always have to start with something…to mirror about, so I've got a center line in here…that starts at my origin.…I'm going to mock up a symmetric plate…that I'm going to be using.…So, I'm going to just sketch an open ended plate…on this side, with a couple of holes in it,…and we'll add in some dimensions as well,…to locate everything.…
Okay, I've almost got this fully defined.…Alright, at this point I've fully defined this sketch.…Everything is in black, it looks good,…but it's open ended, and I want to mirror this…about this center line.…So I'm going to go ahead and turn on…the mirror entities feature,…and first it asks you what do you want to mirror.…So I'm going to go ahead, and without selecting this line,…I'm going to draw a box, pulling from right to left…to get the green selection, and grab everything.…
And you can see it grabs all of the entities.…Now we're going to copy that, so we're going to make…
