Sorry for asking about very beginner question. But I have no idea how to solve it.

I am modeling a round stool look like this.

enter image description here

When I built one of leg, I don't have idea how to copy another one perfectly. enter image description here

I tried to use mirror modifier. But it can not save the details of connection.

enter image description here

Is there any easy way to duplicate and paste to the correct part? I only can think that delete the stool leg part one by one and paste it 3 times...

Thanks for helping!

The most logical way to do it is to begin with a circle that is divisible by 3 (here a 18 vertex circle), create one stool leg, remove the other 2/3, activate the Transform Pivot Point > 3D Cursor and put the cursor at the origin of your object:

enter image description here

Then in Edit mode select all and Shift+D, R, Z, 1, 2, 0, Enter to duplicate and rotate 120°:

enter image description here

Then at the end select all and press M > Merge by Distance in order to merge all the overlapping vertices.
