make any part, make a idw off it.
mirror the part in a way, that all sketches/features stay intact, but

So you end up with a mirrored part, fully parametric, with a finished idw
(may need some cleanup though), but with NO parametric relation to the first
This feature would save me a lot of work on occassion.
I've done this in MDT many times with great success!
