[ADDED] Select and Rotate a Group of Models on the Bed

Fri Dec 12, 2014 10:39 am

Is it possible to select a Group of Models and move/rotate/scale? them all together on the bed?
Can I SHIFT-CLICK or APPLE-CMD-CLICK to select the ones I want to move?

If NOT: Feature Request please :-)

While we are talking about grouping of models, it would be great if you could select a group of models and associate them with a process rather than having to edit the process settings to select the models that it applies to. It catches me out every time when I duplicate a model because the process only applies to the original model and not the others that were added through duplication.

In my request just looking for familiar Mac/PC keyboard actions to select/add/remove items from a Group ... then MOVE, SCALE, ROTATE them.
SHIFT to ADD
SHIFT-CMD to REMOVE
CMD to SELECT
Or whatever is best and Standard in the computer interface world.

I'd like to second the request for being able to GROUP a set of imported models. Ideally, the software would then treat that group as a single unit and allow us to apply any commands to the group as a whole (rotate, move, apply process, etc). This would be in keeping with how many other design/layout programs work, and would be a huge boon to dual-extruder owners who want to print objects as a single piece.

This feature has been added in version 3.0. You can easily select multiple models to rotate together. You can also group parts together if you always want them to be transformed together.
