  • Mirror command is a very important and useful command in AutoCAD. This command is placed in the Modify panel in the Home tab.
  • The Mirror command creates a reverse copy of an object. After you select some objects, AutoCAD asks you to select two points that define a line about which the objects will be mirrored.
  • You can then erase or delete the source objects. Follow these steps to use this command.
