prevent separate parts from rotating

Sometimes for us it is necessary to prevent only one or two parts from rotating/mirroring due to the rolling direction of the metal. Would be nice to have an option to prevent separate parts from rotating/mirroring.

Hi Matthias,


Thanks for getting in touch. This is already possible in the software...


In the cases where this is important you can select the detailed grid view on the parts ribbon. This allows you to set separate rotation and mirror rules for the parts as you require. If you select multiple parts and set the rotations / mirrors on one part all of the selected parts will take the same settings. This makes applying the standard settings easy and you can then just change the exceptions.




Where you don't need that level of control you can switch back to the standard grid by clicking that button again.


I hope that helps.
