I like the Grouping feature where I can build a thing that moves, duplicates, and acts as one unit.
But I would like to be able to see the Group I am editing in context to where it is. Now, when you edit, you see only the Grouped part on a white background.
If I click on a Group and then choose to edit it, I would like to see the adjacent model so that I can make things in the Group fit and be exactly positioned.
Basically, show the non-Group lines and surfaces, but all editing is to the Group itself and never to anything outside the group.
This would be especially important for 3D printing in color where a single printed part can have multiple printed colors, but each color needs to be an enclosed space. So I need to build surfaces in the group to close it and some of those surfaces are in the same identical position as the closing walls for different groups.
Essentially, each printed component needs to be its own enclosed space, and have its own walls that may be identically sized and positioned as other walls outside the group.
To get everything lined up I need to see where the group fits into the bigger picture. So I need to see everything that is not in the group.
A toggle to enable and disable the “Group in Context” would be nice.
