Aligning "modify settings" models

Posted · Aligning "modify settings" models

I'm having trouble figuring out how to position/align "modify settings" models.  When I import the STLs, Cura distributes them around the build plate as though they are to be individually printed -- normally that's fine, but when one of them is just a mask for where I need greater infill, I have to eyeball it back into position -- particularly tricky if I'm rotating the models before printing.

 

On a closely related note, shouldn't "automatically drop to buildplate" be per-model, or ignored for modify-settings models?

 

Tips&tricks?  Thanks.

    If you select multiple models, right click and select Merge models, they will be combined into a group sharing their original origin.

     

    You can select/manipulate individual models inside a group by control-clicking.

     

    Yes, it would be nice if modifier-meshes did not drop to the buildplate.
