  • Coordinate System — Currently, only modo’s default Y up-axis is supported.
  • Group Locators — Only top-level mesh and static mesh items are used for bounds and orientation. This will likely be addressed in a future update.
  • Static Mesh Items — Sticking items to the surface a of Static Mesh is not supported. However, you can move Static Mesh items across the polygon surfaces of regular mesh items.
  • Decals — This tool does not project decal polygons onto the surface. Rather it sticks the decal polygon to the surface, matching the surface normal.
