Why?, when assembly is copied with miror gets different assembly number.??

Assembly numbering also takes into consideration the relative position of the single parts to the main part of the assembly. When you do a mirror on an assembly, this relative position can change, if the attached parts are not symmetrically positioned in relation to the main part. So please check if the assembly is symmetric first, allowing mirror to create an identical assembly. If it appears symmetric but the mirror still doesn't give you a correct output, please send us a model dwg with the original assembly and the mirrored one that appears with a different assembly number.

Hi Dumitru. I found out that assemply numbering is not the problem. The problem is asimetrical parts. When you will mirror some asymetrical part like L-shape or C-Shape (see picture C-Shape = U-Shape) then the exactly same elements wits same features get diferent part number, because of this parts same assemblyes gets different asembly numbers. (on attached picture i make 4 profiles, I, C(U), L and SHS and drill 2 holes) the I and SHS shapes gets same numbers but L and C profiles gets different numbers. Best regards and Happy New Year.

The asymmetrical objects you mirror in the examples have features that make the mirror object different then the source. If you rotate the mirrored object to match the position of the source one, you will notice that the hole patterns will be on the other side, making the two objects different, reason for which AS numbers those two objects with a different mark.
