I don't understand why it is forbidden to make a symmetry on a volume.
Is there a technical point, which is difficult or ?
It is something which can be useful, because i like to have symmetric
meshes. And i see that Symmetry command is defined for points, lines or
surfaces, and not for volumes.
It is really disappointing :-(
