How do you find and use dynamic mirror in SolidWorks?

The Dynamic Mirror tool is a sketcher tool that allows you to dynamically mirror geometry as you're sketching it. To use dynamic mirror, you first have to find it as it probably won't be on your sketch toolbar to start out with. First, hit the 'S' key then right mouse click on the menu and select customize. Go to the 'Commands' tab and select 'Sketch'. There you'll see the Dynamic Mirror icon. It looks like the mirror icon but with a little lightning bolt symbol. Simply drag and drop the dynamic mirror icon to either the 'S' menu or to the sketch toolbar and you're all set!
