sequential printing is a real pain in the butt in S3D but it is one of the primary reasons to USE S3D. it is its most powerful feature.
but its implimentation needs some serious work.
for example when I want to print 10 of something. I need to copy the object 10 times and copy the process 10 times. why?
then worse. I have to manually goto each process and assign it to each individual object because all 10 process assume all or none of all 10 objects.
if you have multiple process "PER" object. yeah. prepare for some PAIN. and no you can't group them. object selection does NOT WORK when grouping. you have to goto EACH PROCESS in the group process and manually assign it to the object you want to print. I have 30 processes I have to edit right now..... talk about pain in the freaking butt.
and it gets worse. you can't REPLACE an object. you have to manually move them and manually reassign them to each and every single process.
This is so bad I have resorted to sorting objects IN THE CAD PROGRAM so I don't have to in S3D and can also use align model origins to fix that problem as well
here is what would make this so much more powerful and my feature request
I should be able to take one object or one set of object and one process or one set of process and duplicate them.
when I duplicate a GROUP it works but it does NOT duplicate the processes or their object assignments when you do and it does not GROUP the duplicate. you have to do all of that manually.
When I have a set of processes and objects and I duplicate them it should duplicate the object the processes the process groupings and the object assignments in those processes.
if I say I want 10 sequential items it should auto generate 10 processes and 10 objects AND assign them.
I should be able to select and object and say "replace" and it should let me select a new STL and place that STL in the same position as the old one in all process in all iterations of processes.
right now I have to basically "start over" if I make an update to a model file.
