  • Context-clicking on the geometry and the context menu will be visible.
  • Opt for the Flip Along context menu item.
  • Now select the path or axis for the flip. The following image depicts the geometry prior to flip process takes place.

Mirroring Geometry: The process for mirroring geometry is identical to flipping, but one can produce a supplementary copy. With mirroring process, one will be able to generate one half of a model and then replicate and mirror that half to produce the other half of the model. In order to mirror geometry, one should abide by the following processes:

  • Choose the geometry to be mirrored.
  • Replicate the geometry.
  • Paste the copy.
  • Context-click on the geometry and the context menu will be shown.
