Hi guys. My name is Esben Oxholm. In this tutorial I will demonstrate how you easily can mirror a model directly inside keyshot. Let’s say you got this scissor model from one of you clients and you have set up some nice materials, some cool lighting and you’re ready to hit render. Then your client calls:

“eehm, actually we want this to be a left hand model.”

Shoot… but don’t worry it is easy to fix. Keyshot doesn’t have a specific mirror button, but it is quite easy to do anyways. What you have to do is to:

  1. Make a duplicate of your model
  2. Move it away from the original model
  3. Make sure the duplicate is selected
  4. Go to the position tab in the scene menu
  5. Adjust the scale value of the direction you want to mirror to -1

That is actually all there is to it. You now have a left hand version of your model.
