    live mirror while drawing object?

    cut-copy-paste Level 1

      I have to design some things that will be fairly complex and also completely symmetrical.. am just wondering if there's anyway to have Illustrator automatically mirror something as i draw it, or some similar solution so that I can see how the object is coming along big picture-like.  I know this is possible in 3d programs I've used like 3DS max, but not sure about Illustrator. Or is there another CAD type program that'll do it that I could then import into illustrator?  Or should I just tape a mirror to my monitor?  I just know that if I do one side by itself I'm going to waste so much time mirroring it to see how it's coming along...
