hi everyone.

i would to report an issue and hope someone now ho to solve it.

for some component when i place a 3d body in the footprint package, the 3D body will not following the footprint flip along X or Y after placing part in the PCB board. it do right for some component and it do wrong for some else component. so i tried, but can't, find differences beetwen them.

i did a video to clarify it. so the switch is first moving with X and Y flip and doing well, but the connector, flipped along X and Y too, have only his footprint moved. connector's 3D body don't follow it's footprint.

anyone could help me

here's the video : https://youtu.be/gNfCiWWEhmw

Do you get same result if you do it in 2D? (e.g. switch to 2D, place component on the bottom side and switch back to 3D)

Then it looks to me more like a bug (?). I would try to update to the latest altium - switch Altium OFF / ON, I could maybe also try to open the file in Older Altium .. and if nothing works, I would maybe also try to ask on Altium Live forum. Please let me know when you find out what the problem is - I think you are not the first one mentioning this problem.
