Model to part
What is it?
It is a plugin that creates a part which has the size of the selected model(s) boundaries and positions it at the centre of the model’s mass. The part is then parented to the model. Properties of part can be changed in the “Part settings” option.
The properties of the part created can be changed in a widget which shows up when you press the Part settings button.
This changes the part to any of the supported types:
This option makes balls fit into the model using the smallest axis.
When fit ball is turned off
When fit ball is turned on
This will increase the size of the part. If your model is the size of 10,9,2 and the increment is set to 1,1,1 the part created will become 11,10,3.

This performs the opposite of increment and will decrease the size of the created part.
