Part Replace


Part Replace

Modeling should offer a Replace function.

That Replace function would be used to replace a model by another one, or shared model instances by another model. Position relative to the designated source model and the designated destination model should be used to replace properly in the 3D space the source by the destination.

This Replace function is not the same as Reintegrate. Replace would change the destinations SysID while Reintegrate keep it unchanged.

I agree, it should be offered in Modeling.

Until it gets added, maybe this will help you.


Many thanks Mike.

That helped me.

It should be standard anyway.
