Symmetric Assembly Simulation

Hello All,

I am new to SolidWorks Simulation and I have a quick question. I would like to perform an analysis on an assembly that is symmetric about the Right & Top planes. I know that Simulation can do this type of analysis and it would be a preferred method since it'll make the calculations simpler. What is the best method to divide up my assembly into a fourth? Do I just create a sketch that encloses the three quarters of the assembly I don't want and cut it out? Thoughts? Thanks.
