Mirror 3d Sketch in a click

This is another SOLIDWORKS 2018 small delighter which one may find not only interesting but useful also in day-to-day modelling specially if you deal with 3d sketches a lot. SOLIDWORKS 2018 now allows user to create a mirror 3d sketches just like 2d sketches.

So what does it take to create a mirror 3d sketch, well just few clicks. Be in the sketch edit mode and either select the entities you want to mirror OR select the mirror command first and then select the desired entities. Select the plane/face about which you want to mirror and then click OK. 

In earlier versions one had to spend time creating surface bodies,  mirroring them and then create the mirrored version of 3d sketch using convert entities. But now with 2018, it’s just in clicks of mouse.

Stay tuned and keep reading for more enhancements of SOLIDWORKS 2018!!
