When transforming Gizmo is active, we have this new clone toggle - fantastic!
But we have a digital input for transformation as well. The clone function is not executed when entering a number. That would be cool to make precise distance copies.
An clone option for numerical input in transformation dialogue.
If checked all numbers are reset to 0
A new field for copies is opening.
Entering translation Move X 0,5 and copies to 5 will do five copies of object with 0.5 distance in X.
If pivot is moved on bottom of a cylinder, entering 45 for rotation z and copies to 5 you will have perfect six spokes with 45 degrees distance for a wheel.
A little pre math should warn user if this action will exceed max memory as there will be freaks trying do make hundreds of copies with a 2 million poly object.
