    Dr Missile, this is possible in Illustrator...

    Create a square much larger than your artboard —> Align Centre.... you could also add a guide to the centre if that will help. Click the target (circle) next to the layer to target the entire layer and content

    Effect > Distort and Transform > Transform...
    Select Reflect X > OK
    Effect > Distort and Transform > Transform...
    Angle 60º; Copies 5 > OK
    Lock the sub-layers containing the guide and square so you don't move them by accident.

    Use the pencil tool or any drawing tool to create something on the layer. It will reflect and so symmetry.

    If you want more or less repetitions you can do the math for that or you could even add more transforms on.

    Play around a little... the possibilities are endless. I use the layer style feature all the time.

    The repeat tool is pretty cool and I think in combination with the Layer Style feature it could bring some more cool effects.
