Mirroring models?

LDCad 1.6 has a mirroring feature, if mirrors around the current (relative) grid's x, y or z axis. It's not perfect for all parts though for the very same reason Kevin wrote.

I discovered this same problem while working on LDCad 1.6 basically it means any part needs to be symmetrical along at least one of its axis (the x axis seems to be just that for most parts though). If not a custom additional (pre) rotation is probably needed. And then there are parts like the left/right wings etc.

I solved this by adding shadow info to some parts (just like with snapping data). But I haven't had the time to add that for all non symmetric parts.
