The Sketcher Symmetry creates mirrored copies of selected elements.


  1. Select one or more edges and/or Point objects. Constraints restricted to the selected elements are also processed.
  2. Select a line or a sketch axis to define the symmetry line, or a point to define the symmetry point.
  3. There are several ways to invoke the tool:
    • Press the Symmetry button.
    • Select the Sketch → Sketcher tools → Symmetry option from the menu.
    • The keyboard shortcut: Z then S.
  4. Mirrored copies are created.


  • The tool does not add symmetry constraints between the original elements and the created copies.
