I'm using Blender 2.8 and want to symmetrize my sculpted model. I've tried Modeling -> Mesh -> Symmetrize but this only offers to symmetrize from -X to +X. How can I symmetrize from +X to -X instead? I can't simply cut my model in half and use a Mirror Modifier due to the nature of the sculpted mesh (no clean line down the middle).

  • $\begingroup$ Once you've symmetrized, you have all the symmetrize options in the block on the bottom left of the 3D View, and you can choose +X to -X. $\endgroup$

Well, I can't find a +X to -X Symmetrize function either, but a trivial solution would be to simply mirror the object before invoking Symmetrize...

    $\begingroup$ No, I didn't mean the mirror modifier. There is a Mirror operation in the same menu as the Symmetrize function. Alternatively, just scale the mesh along X by -1 . $\endgroup$ Jun 19, 2019 at 16:08
