Mirror Tool - v2.0

Klaudio Ladavac
66 ratings

Mirror Tool is a small script, helper, to make object mirroring a bit more intuitive and fun. It is based on Maya (now legacy) Mirror Cut tool which is not available by default in Maya 2016 Extension 2 and up since there is now just one tool - Mirror. That said, Mirror Cut can still be used under the hood even in latest Maya 2018 releases so if you are missing Mirror Cut - here it is.

It comes with few improvements:

  • Quick +/- X, Y or Z axis mirror
  • No object disappearing or material/shader losing
  • Single button clean history and all mirror residuals in Outliner
  • Quick Step Rotate (mirror plane or mesh rotate)

Supported Maya versions

Maya 2018 - 2022+

The script should work on every Maya release from 2016 and up, including all Maya LT 2016 and up.  Mac OSX - not tested since i don't have Mac but it should work on all Maya versions mentioned above.
