I agree with that. But its not possible to use clones?
You don't want to use clone here, because you loose all the useful child objects.
If you don't want the assembly to touch your body's placement, simple right click the item in the tree view and select 'Link actions' -> 'Make link', and then add the newly created link to the assembly container, instead. This way, you can access the child object as usual.
If that is your workflow, i.e. you never want assembly to change your original object's placement, change the 'Parts' (under assembly) container's property 'GroupMode' to 'AutoLink' or 'AutoUnlink'. Now, when drag anything into the assembly, it will automatically create link(s) for you. If 'GroupMode' is 'AutoUnlink', if you drag out the link inside the assembly, it will auto delete the link.
Try Assembly3 (latest version 0.10.2
) along with my custom build of FreeCAD at here
