This would make certain that the multiple objects were imported at the same scale and relative location and allow the individual objects to be edited independantly.

Have you tried checking "Merge to Separate Volumes" in the Merge tool options?

Imported/ merged objects as separate surface object instances is already available


3DCoat imports meshes with groups/polygroups/parts etc as a nested volume but will not export the modified components out as one unified mesh with separate components, each must in turn be separated out from the nested group and exported individually which is a great shame production wise. At least for me that is the case I have had no luck exporting the nested volume.

Ah I see AbRanger has already replied before I'd even posted

To be able to export a nested surface object

Do you mean export directly from the Voxel Room? Haven't tried that, but if you retopo and merge to the Paint Room, thenexport, all objects in the scene get exported as one OBJ file.

Thanks guys. The "Merge to Separate Volumes" worked great.

AbnRanger yes I had attempted to export from the Voxel room after using liveclay to poly reduce on a per layer basis.

For now, you will probably have to right-click each layer and export them as separate files. Then in an external program import them into the scene and do whatever merging/grouping operation you need at that stage.

Thanks AbnRanger , yes for the time being that seems the best bet - export per layer.
