Dear all, I think this has been discussed already but I can’t seem to find the thread…
When dealing with a group of parts, either small similar parts or a group of different parts going together, it would be great if we could lay them out and be able to copy this layout. Currently the bevaviour is as follow :
Group of parts
Result after selecting duplicate
The behavior is the same when importing a .form file.
We currently have to lay the parts out manually and with the slowness of PreForm when managing dozens of parts if quickly becomes a huge time sink when this whould be a simple copy/paste operation.
The reason behind this request, despite the obvious ones, is that in this particular situation it is much easier to manage the removal of the parts from the PB when they are grouped together so the automatic layout feature doesn’t work well. In other cases, you may want to merge multiple prints into one and keep the grouping for easier post-treatment.
As a follow-up request, being able to select a group of parts and rotating the group instead of the individual parts would also be a big help.
Thanks for the feedback
