is there any way i can reflect an extrusion over an axis in inventor 2015

Create a work plane on the axis you want to reflect over. (3D Model > Work Features > Plane > Midplane between two planes)

Use the mirror function. (3D Model > Pattern > Mirror)

so, can i create an axis where i can reflect something over

basicly i have to make another green thing on the other side, but it took an hour just for one side, and im thinking of if i could save time by just reflecting the lines, or the extrudes to the other clean side.Capture1.PNG.07afd5eb73a9d47e03d78269ce6

jus the lines

Are you wanting to extrude to the opposite face, or just the other side of the round thing?

Im using Inventor 2013 (lol) but create a plane on that side you want to mirror. Enter sketch mode and select the lines you want to reflect using the mirror tool. Finish sketch and extrude.

What he said. You can mirror a sketch over a line pretty simply.

I've built 3 PC's, but none for myself... In fact, I'm using an iMac that my dad bought for me as my desktop. Awkward...

Please don't say "SSD drive." By doing so, you are literally saying "Solid State Drive Drive" and causing my brain cells to commit suicide. The same applies to HDD (Hard Disk Drive) and PCIe (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express).

if your part is symmetrical you should be able to mirror that feature using that center line pretty easily.
