Symmetry is strange behaving

Hi everybody. i wonder, does somebody know why the x-symmetry is not so good working?

here i switched it on right when i started, but the mesh is not symmetricaly. i thought it might be because of remesh,and i wouldent be so bad.

then i remesh more, and something strange starts to happen… its all with symmetry on. see this ears?

thanks in advance

I’m not exactly sure why, but I’ve also experienced the symmetry sometimes going a bit awry.

One thing that can help is hitting the Symmetrize button in the symmetry drop down menu, just make sure to set the preferred direction:



To me, it seems that symmetry is only working when you are sculpting. Remesh is something completely different. It doesn’t do symmetrical mesh.

With re-mesh the opposite vertices don’t match anymore exactly. So the error grows.

You can delete one half and use the mirror (apply) to make a good object to sculpt on.


Thank you guys. that seems to work.
