You can easily create symmetrical designs in uMake using the symmetry tools. This video shows you where to find the symmetry tools and how you can use them to help in your creative process

 uMake enables you to sketch with Symmetry,
 enabling the creation of symmetrical designs
 2
 00:00:05,210 --> 00:00:06,799
 with ease.
 3
 00:00:06,799 --> 00:00:12,650
 To sketch with symmetry, you need to first
 turn on symmetry along a specific axis.
 4
 00:00:12,650 --> 00:00:18,900
 You can do this from the quick tools here,
 or in the settings side panel.
 5
 00:00:18,900 --> 00:00:23,040
 We recommend using the quick tools as it is
 much faster.
 6
 00:00:23,040 --> 00:00:28,230
 As you can see, there is X, Y, and Z axis
 symmetry.
 7
 00:00:28,230 --> 00:00:32,529
 Selecting any axis will turn on symmetrical
 sketching.
 8
 00:00:32,529 --> 00:00:37,930
 What you sketch on once side of an axis will
 be reflected on the other side.
 9
 00:00:37,930 --> 00:00:42,699
 When used with Sketch Planes, this can be
 very effective in creating a symmetrical 3D
 10
 00:00:42,699 --> 00:00:44,710
 sketch in no time.
 11
 00:00:44,710 --> 00:00:50,440
 As long as symmetry remains on, any changes
 made to once side will be reflected on the
 12
 00:00:50,440 --> 00:00:52,620
 other side as well.
 13
 00:00:52,620 --> 00:00:56,910
 Try using symmetry located in the quick tools
 and creating a symmetrical design.
