    There are a few ways to mirror objects in Sketchup. One way is to use the "duplicate" function and then flip the duplicate horizontally or vertically. Another way is to use the "rotate" function and then mirror the object about an axis. Finally, you can use the "Offset" function to create a duplicate that is offset from the original object by a certain distance. Whichever method you choose, be sure to check for errors (especially intersecting geometry) and fix them before publishing your final model.

    In Sketchup, mirroring is a way of creating a duplicate of a selected object or group of objects. After you've mirrored an object, the duplicate will be positioned in such a way that it appears as if it were a reflection of the original object.

    To mirror an object in Sketchup, select the object(s) you want to mirror and go to Edit > Copy or press Ctrl+C (Windows) or Cmd+C (Mac). Next, go to Edit > Paste Mirror or press Ctrl+M (Windows) or Cmd+M (Mac). A dialog box will appear asking how you want to orient the mirrored objects. Select whichever option makes the most sense for your design.

    In Sketchup, you can mirror objects by selecting them and then going to Edit > Mirror. This will create a copy of the object that is facing the opposite direction.

    To mirror an object in SketchUp, you can use the mirroring tools available on the toolbar or in the menu bar. First, select the object that you want to mirror. Then, select Mirror > Copy from the menu bar, or click on the " mirrored " icon on the toolbar.

    The mirroring tool will create a copy of your selected object that is aligned with the original object. To change how the copied object is aligned, you can use the rotation and scaling controls. You can also move and rotate the copied object independent of the original object.

    You can mirror a model in SketchUp by creating a copy of the model, flipping it horizontally, and then aligning it with the original.

    1. Create a copy of the model you want to mirror.
    2. Flip the copied model horizontally by selecting Edit > Mirror > Flip Along Horizontal Axis.
    3. Align the two models by selecting Edit > Align > Align Selected Vectors. Make sure that both models are selected before clicking this button.
    4. Click the Move button and drag one of the mirrored models until its edges are aligned with those of the original model. Then release the mouse button to drop it into place.
