ADD-IN AUTO JOIN TUTORIAL

Are you wasting a lot of time on joining model? Having to select each component and manual Join really takes a lot of time. Over time, you will feel inhibited and will reduce your effective work :(
From now, you will no longer be in that inhibitory state. QˊApps has launched Add-In Auto Join to help you optimize your productivity. You do not have to spend a lot of manipulations and time for joining models anymore. Just 1 click, you can Join the whole model in just 1 second.
Check out my tutorial :)

The first time you use the Add-In, you will have to set up the Rules Join to suit your requirements.

To create a rules for Auto Join, click on "New Rule" and set up the required category priority.
After the first set up, the Rules are automatically saved in memory for future using.
You can save the rules into the file and then reload the file saved to another computer or for subsequent runs.

First column: Priority Category - Priority Category while joining.
Second column: Join with Category - The category will be joined with the priority category in the first column.
Third column: Reverse - Change the priority of the join category.
There are 2 options for selecting the Join elements:
1. Current View: If you don't select any element for joining, Add-In will default to running on all elements on the current view.
2. Current Selection: This option is selected when you select the elements before running Add-In and Add-In will only run on the selected elements.
