Makes the selected geometry symmetric, and lets you modify the controls (CVs, edit points, blend points) on one side, while the corresponding controls on the symmetric half update automatically to maintain the symmetry.

If you don't have Realize Shape, I would create a ribbon on the plane of symmetry, and constrain my surfaces to be tangent, or curvature continous to that ribbon sheet.
To speak frankly, I didnot find time to be familiar with Realize Shape. Currently it seems to me other commands like X-Form are enough for most Class A work. And I haven't seen similar functionalities in Alias.
In my current understanding Realize Shape is a special tool for artists producing originial design. Is it an essential tool for Class A workflow? Maybe I was totally wrong and missed an extremely important tool?
There is no "symmetric modeling mode" in NX but there is Mirror Display.
You can model one side first using mirror display, and when done mirror the geometry.
Search the command finder for "Mirror display".
( I think that a few of the direct modeling commands can do symmetric edits.)
