Tips & Tricks: Mirror drawing view



SOLIDWORKS has a cool feature that can be used to mirror the drawing view without the need of mirroring the reference part:.  

All projected and linked views are then updated based on the mirrored drawing view.

To mirror a drawing view:

  1. Select the drawing view.
  2. Expand the "Mirror" option in drawing view properties.
  3. Check the option "Mirror view" and choose whether you want to mirror a drawing view horizontally or vertically.

All the dimensions and annotations will keep their position after the mirroring.
