Hello guys,

I love using 3D coat to retopo, UV and texture.
I just have an issue on 80% of the models I work on with "symmetry". It will be working great, then out of nowhere later into the project it seems like all the polys snap to the symmetry axis plane...

What causes this to happen, how can I prevent/stop it from happening and how can I fix the retopo after this happens.

Once I turn off symmetry, the original half goes back to normal, but I can't use symmetry on it again unless I export, import. Did I just answer my question or is there another way?

Thanks!

Is Virtual Mirror Mode switched off ?

It is switched "ON". Should it be switched off?

When I switch it off, I don't see the mirrored side, only the working side.

Also, an update:

If the VoxTree reference is hidden, symmetry works. It is only snapping to the axis plane when showing the ref.

ok, solved. ... ish...

Toggling "Virtual Mirror Mode" off then on again reinitialized the symmetry and its working again.

Thanks for that @Calosan.

The Symmetry plane is not centered.  Try "To Center of Object" or use the "Pick" technique to place he plane where necessary.

After toggling "Virtual Mirror Mode" off use apply symmetry commmand

Are you using latest version 4.8.10 ?
