mirror entire assembly

mirror entire assembly

hello - short time solidworks user - i would like to mirror an entire assembly to make a left hand from a right hand - is this possible?
the asesembly is entirely the same except it is opposite hand - any help would be greatly appreciated - also if i may is there a place i can download flexloc metric thin height nuts - thank you

RE: mirror entire assembly

Yes, it is possible. Just like in a part, you'll select the plane you want to mirror about and then select the parts you want to mirror. You can also box select.

RE: mirror entire assembly

If it's a large assembly, going through all the sub-components could be time consuming and the mates won't mirror over, but I would recommend doing it that way, it's cleaner.

Alternatively, a cheaty way to do it is to save the assembly as a part and mirror that if you just need the graphical representation
