Copied and Not Mirrored

Hello SW community.


I am working on a female to female threaded adapter, and currently I have one side completed.  I would usually mirror the whole body over plane1 and call it good, but instead of being right hand threads, the mirrored side makes it left hand threads.  Is it possible to do this by just copying it and not mirroring it?


I am asking this question because I am not willing to try to repeat the same process I did on the first side of the part.  The process of getting the proper thread form and length of the treads was very long and difficult.  Maybe I am just doing it wrong, but sometimes it would take a few hours just to rebuild the part in solidworks.  If you want to take a minute to look at the part and see if there is a way to speed up the process I would be most grateful.
