    Default Quickly constraint parts together with origin planes

    Summary: Add button for creating origin planes flash constraint between 2 or more parts (or assemblies) at once.

    Description: Add button for creating origin planes flash constraint between 2 or more parts (or assemblies) at once. Otherwise similar to ground and root but it's debendent on assembly origin.
    Working flow
    - Select parts or assemblies that you want to fix with same coordinate system
    - Push the button
    => selected parts (and/or assemblies) have totally flashed coordinate system none of them changes grounded setting.
    Of course in multiple selection the flashes are only with first selected part!
    - In model tree it would be nice if there were some indicator between parts (and/or assemblies) that are fixed together this way. Flash name could indicate the first selected part!
    - In case of later redoing the thing => flashes are created again only with first selected part (in previous part set)!

    What about "Root and Ground" . The feature is already there.

    Yes there is a ground and root, that flushes with assembly coordinate system and gorunds the part. My wish is to similarry flush 2 or more parts or assys together.

    I know it's an old thread but I think it's adressed since at least 2 versions in productivity tools. My screenshot is in french version but the button should be something like "place to component origin" (see attachement).

    If I'm right, it's useless to keep this in the wish list.

    I vote for this one too. The "Place at Component Origin" tool is OK, but it's cumbersome to browse through the entire workspace to the part you want to place.
