Summoning the wise and worldly Master of All Things SketchUp (Dave)... :D

Dave, I remember you have a slick trick for making a mirrored (reversed) copy of a component, like the left and right sides of a drawer or piece of furniture. Unfortunately, I can't remember how you did it. Can you point me to a link that shows how it's done, or explain it again here for us slow kids (or old guys, depending on point of view)? Thanks in advance!

Use the move tool. Make your part a component. Select your component to mirror, press M for the move tool, hold control key and drag the part in the direction you wish to make a copy of it. Once you have it in position, right click and flip it on the axis you wish for it to mirror in....I think that is correct anyway. ;)
