This plugin is a great alternative to the built in symmetry object that comes with Cinema 4D. You can model using symmetry without having to cut the object in half. Just simply place the True Symmetry Tag on a polygon object, enable symmetry, and begin modeling. You will see right away that the opposite side of your model is created without having to lift a finger. This is a useful modeling plugin for character modeling and all other modeling styles.
This plugin includes versions for Mac and Windows and works with Cinema 4D 10+.
We hope you enjoy this plugin as much as we enjoyed making it.
This plugin was created by Nebu, and Shawn Foster (emberintherain).

To avoid the bugs with the background, turn off "show plane" once you have set up your symmetry.
