 The Outliner 2.0 is a fast and easy to use scene management tool. It has a wide range of features, including selecting, hiding, freezing, linking and grouping objects in the "Hierarchy Mode". In the "Layer Mode" you can organize your scene by dragging&dropping objects from one layer to the other. What's more, the Outliner offers support for nested layers, to manage scenes more efficiently. The interface is nimble enough to keep it open constantly.

Subobjects Converter

v3.06
When importing models, there is often a single first smoothing group when the object is broken into elements. When seams are welded together, the result is not a model with faces, but a monolithic piece by Smoothing group.
To solution this problem: In subobjects 5 (Elements) added a function to assign a different smoothing group to each element. To RUN this function press ESC+5. After that all seams of surfaces can be soldered normally.
