1/ When I try to do the symetry of a set via "assembly -> file", the set explodes! 1bis/ The external set symmetry explodes!
I am not sure if this is expected behavior or not, but if you internalize the external components, the assembly doesn't explode
2/ when I make the symmetry of a component and I modify afterwards the volume the symmetry does not follow 3/ If I make the symmetry of a body it works on the other hand it is not practical to make a BOM so if I create the component of this new body, I lose the link of symmetry...
The mirror tool behavior was changed a few versions back.
If you mirror a component, the resulting mirror will be independent of the original, and therefore changes to one will not affect the other.
However, if you mirror a solid, changes to one will apply to the other.
Therefore, if you want to mirror components, wait until you've made all your edits to the geometry of the original before mirroring.
4/ You can't make a symmetry of a set composed of internal AND external elements
I was not able to reproduce this issue. Are you noticing this for a particular file or with other files too? Can you share an example to reproduce this issue?
