    I have a question about keyholes. I was taught that all that matters is the top view, right (end) and front view. If you squash those views, you will always get three 2-D images that you can rotate around 360 degrees until you get the correct aperture. Easy enough right?

    But now the question is: can you, along with rotating the image, also invert it? As in take the mirror image of it? As in flip it? I'm not saying moving the 2-D squashed image AFTER you figure it out, I'm asking whether you're allowed to straight up just flip it and use the inverted image. I'm only asking this because I was taught by Crack the PAT that you can only rotate the image but never invert it.

    To demonstrate what I mean, I'll link a drawing I made of the front view of an object vs its inverted (flipped) front view.
