That new Material Management was the most tricky thing, I plane it about 3 months :) And everytime I wanted to post request I found that idea is not perfect and rebuild it a couple of times. Now I think it turns really great very simple and intuitive.

Excellent additions, thanks !

The cap hole tool is really cool when capping a open ended cylinder.
