Mirroring Objects in AutoCAD

You mirror objects around a mirror line, which you define with two points, as shown in the following illustration. You can delete or retain the original objects. Mirroring works in any plane parallel to the XY plane of the current UCS. Although you can mirror a viewport object in paper space, doing so has no effect on its model space view or model space objects.

  1. From the Modify menu, choose Mirror.
  2. Select the objects to mirror with a window (1 and 2).
  3. Specify the first point of the mirror line (3).

  5. Press ENTER to retain the original objects.
