New Feature: Multi-Mirror
I often work with symmetrical designs in multi-part studios, and many times I have a number of parts to mirror across multiple planes. With the standard mirror feature, I have to use a new feature for each part x the number of planes to mirror about. That means if I have 3 parts to mirror about the top, right, and front planes, I'll need 9 mirror features. This feature can do it all in one go either using the world planes, or the 3 directions of a mate connector. Hopefully, someone else finds it useful too. You can find the feature here. I'm open to improvement suggestions if someone imagines a tweak that would open up a better workflow. note: this isn't meant to replace the standard mirror, since it only handles bodies and is a lot less flexible in certain ways, but it definitely solves a pain-point I've had since the Solidworks days.
