Default Help

Can somebody pleeaassee help me.
How do I activate symmetry on my model. I'm creating a eye, and when I tweak the left I must tweak the right. Unless I must select both sides, but is there not an easier way.


I need help......

Wrong forum ante its the new forum your after.

What you need to do is select half of the model and create an instance in the duplicate options box, be sure to have the scale to -1 in the X
