New Plugin: Utilities

miauu's Objects Replacer offers you an easy, fast and powerful way of replacing objects or groups with another object or group (copy, instance or reference). It has a lot of options that the replacing object can inherit from the object it replaces such as transformation, material, position, rotation, scale, dimensions, name, layer, parent, children and wire color. When replacing groups you can choose to treat the group as a single object or to replace all objects in the group and to keep the hierarchy. If the object being replaced has children you can choose to clone them or not (the hierarchy will be preserved). If you are replacing an instanced object, you have an option to replace all of the instances with the new object.
