Insert: Original location


is it possible with the Insert command to place the geometry at the exact same place as it is in the external file? The files share the same locations and I would like to update a part that was being worked on in a copy file.

Copy/Paste will do that.

Copy/Paste does not work in this case, it returns that there would be no Rhino geometry in the clipboard. I tried it several times, it works usually. Maybe it is too big for the clipboard / 600mb?

Hello - in that case, Export/Import. - you can make a macro that exports to a known location and one that imports the same file, overwriting each time.


Did you try to just import the file ?


That seems like a good solution! Thanks.
