[ADDED] Simplify 5.0 - Reload model support

Hi,

I'd like to be ale to select all the models in the left hand pain, and be able to left click, reload, which will reload the model from disk , and if it cannot be found pop up a file open dialog box, or display an error message.

But I want the reloaded model to retain the transformation and printer settings. My workflow is I'm printing complex multi model prints, where each model may have a specific transformation and specific printer settings, or specific process. and I want to be able to quickly reload models without having to do a bunch of manual work each time.

Re: Simplify 5.0 - Reload model support

I think you are already describing how the new feature in V5 works! If you modify the file on disk it will ask if you want to reload it. If you click yes, then the new geometry is imported but it retails all of your prior transformations, supports, printer settings, etc. It's quite seamless so it makes the process very quick if you want to do repeat edits in the CAD program.
