Blender: How to Mirror Eyes

Blender: How to Mirror an Object with the Mirror Modifier

So I was working on yet another cute cat blob character in Blender, and this time I was using Mirror Mode to create it. Then I reached the point where I have to add a pair of cute, big eyes to the character. Now, I did this before by setting the Cursor to World Origin in Object Mode, but this time I wanted to see if there is a way to do it differently.

Mirror an Object with the Mirror Modifier

Luckily, Blender is packed with possibilities and yes, I found another way to mirror the eyes!

To mirror the object, I used Mirror Modifier. This means I made the eye, fitted it into the socket of my character and while having it selected, I added the Mirror Modifier and set the correct axis (in my case the Y axis) and it added the other eye right in the correct place!

I created this character in Blender 3.2.0.
