Dynamic Mirror

Dynamic Mirror - A really quick tip for instantly creating symmetry within a sketch in SOLIDWORKS.
 
1. Draw a centreline, ideally going through the origin

2. Within the active sketch, select Tools > Sketch Tools > Dynamic Mirror

3. Select your centreline, two parallel lines should appear at either end of the centreline

4. As you create a sketch on one side of the centreline, the Dynamic Mirror tool will automatically create a symmetrical shape the other side, which has the same relations as the sketch you’re creating.

A simple tool but can save a lot of time especially on complex symmetrical sketches, give it a go!
