Mirror in sketch from axes

Status: Future Consideration
by Advisor roambotics_scott on ‎09-16-2015 10:22 AM

Very often I want to mirror something in a sketch off of the center line based on the global origin / axes. 

 

Currently I have to add an extra stray line to the sketch.

 

Instead, we should just be able to use the origin axes (preferably without having to select and show them)

This has my vote and I am linking to a similar idea that was archived due to lack of votes:

Even if you need an arbitrary line to mirror about when an axis is not suitable this would allow you to draw that line with the mirroring dialog open and would not "pollute" the sketch with additional objects, which is someting direly needed ;)

I wish I could up vote the archived idea (if I didn't already up vote it; I almost want to make 10 fake accounts to tip the no-brainers over the threshold).

Maybe I could set up two Fusion accounts for my Kids (9 and 14 ) to increase voting power ;-)

Just kidding.

The origin and 3 axes should be allowed to be used in constrains, mirroring and other operations as any other line or point in the sketch.
