Dynamic mirror tool in SOLIDWORKS

A cool tool called Dynamic mirror which you maybe did not know about.

  1. Step 1:

    What is Dynamic Mirror? It is basically like a regular sketch mirror with one major difference.

    I have started a new sketch and what I did is that i drew a centerline without any other 2D geometry.

    So if you want to find Dynamic Mirror it is in Tools--->Sketch Tools--->Dynamic Mirror.

  2. Step 2:

    After I activated the command I need to select a line to mirror about.

  3. Step 3:

    After I selected the line I just began drawing on one side and what happens is that everything replicates on the other side as I draw, you have got these "equal" icons near the vertices.Try this and you will see clearly.

    And this is some shape I randomly drew, the command is not a big deal, you will probably still use regular mirror, but still, a nice tool :)
