Being able to mirror sketch entities around a line or edge has been possible for many versions of SolidWorks. However, there’s a little used tool that allows you mirror sketch entities as you draw in real time. This is the Dynamic Mirror Entities tool, and it has the capabilities to shave multiple steps off of your sketch process. This video walks you through the Dynamic Mirror Entities tool.
