5:37 - Uploading single-material models versus multi-material
→→→ Importing "multi-material models" will automatically group and align the models.
→→→ Grouping models allows you to move, scale, rotate, and duplicate them easily.
→→→ Importing multiple "single material models" will disperse them on the print bed.
