Is is possible to mirror a componet or how do you explode one?
Yes, you can mirror a component. You can also explode it. Mirroring can be done with Flip Along (in the right click, Context menu) and exploding is also in the right click menu.
What exactly is it you want to do. Those two operations are very different.
Hello! Additionaly there’s also a little trick you can do with the Scale Tool. Move the central node by -1 and your model will be mirrored.

Thank you for your help!
These work well unless your model is “off” the major axes. In that case you would re-align the axes (using the axis tool) to your selection or group or component first, and then do the flip or scaling using -1.
