Note: As of version 1.2 the new name of this plugin is Clone+ (formerly known as Attacher). Sufficient number of features was added to justify the name change.

The original purpose of the tool was to aid the user with aligning of one piece of geometry to another when the rotation angles are difficult to match manually. In the current incarnation this plugin is more of a general purpose cloning tool. It can use either vertices or polygons as placeholders for copied geometry.

Note: Due to a bug in Lightwave 9.3 product cycle this plugin might offer no interactivity in some beta versions of the software.
