Example if I make a plate in SDD (Structure Detail Design) in CATIA.can I mirror the same about a plane I.e.symmetry. ?

    See, if you are making a plate in catia then u dont have to mirror it. You can just pattern it. by using rectangular pattern.
    And if let us say u r having a cylinder with one end flat and another end spherical, then obviously you cant pattern it. So here u can use circular pattern. In that you can use COMPLETE CROWN option with 2 no of instances. Hence it will place your model exactly at 180 degree. and it will act same as that of the mirror.
    But ya. you cant exactly mirror a very complicated model.If i found something more about it, i will update you.
