I want to draw an enclosure around the body but it is not symmetric about XZ plane, how can i draw enclosure around it or how can i make it symmetric about that plane?
best wishes

You could mark a face of the body and create a new plane from that face. Then you can move/mirror/do other body transformations to your reference plane (XZ plane).

I wanted to create an enclosure around the body and use just the other part of the body for simulation, however it is not symmetric about the plane. How can I make it symmetric?

mark the face of the enclosure - body transformation - destination plane is your symmetry plane.

Hi,

I am not sure if I understand your question well. Perhaps you can slice the geometry using xy plane, suppress the undesired part want and define the cut face as symmetry in mesh.

Hope it helps.
