I dont know if this is asking for a plug-in or if this feature exists and i cant find it.
I want to be able to mirror an about along a specified line. The problem with the mirror currently in blender is that it pics where to mirror the object and usually i want some certain point to line up in my model so i can put the two sides back together. I currently have a workaround but its long. Anyway ill explain it here so you can understand what im getting at.
First i put my cursor on a vertex along the desired mirror line.
Next i exit edit mode and set the center of the object to the cursor
Then Duplicate the object and rotate it 180 degrees about the center (although if the left and right sides are different i have a problem at this point.
Then i join the meshes back together and eliminate doubles.
Is there an easier way?
