There is most unique from them – the ability to assign custom previews to materials, associate files with materials, and create a gallery of files associated with any type of assets including materials.

Pointcashe is supported

The demo-version of "Project Manager" allows to work only with limited number of random files.
If scene contains the less then 8 files the PM allow to work with all links.
For testing the specific modifiers you can create scene with 7 links to external files.
PM support for relink all modifiers and objects, which contains the external links.

Thanks for interest.

>>When merging , please add

>>When merging , please add feature object follow surface direction. 

Ok, I will be add this possibility, but after the release of the final version

Now follow surface also work, but the object is always directed perpendicular to the ground.

This is useful for placing lamps and paintings on the walls.

>>I got some error when rendering one mat file that contain many mat in it. (you know what I mean)

You can manually open this Material library?

Please repost picture.

If possible please send this material library file to e-mail


>>I got buggy message during rendering ies file

Will be fixes in the next update.
