This is probably a bit late, but it is tough to keep up with CFD-Online

You need to select the object, then go to Create (2nd menu next to File) and do a body operation. There are many types of operations, including mirror and rotate. You may first need to create an LCS if you don't already have a curve you can select for the axis of rotation...

You should be able to figure out the rest from there.
