Hi ghan, I've added this to the wishlist here: http://moi3d.com/wiki/Wishlist

Unfortunately it will probably be quite difficult to make this work properly though - SpaceClaim has done quite a large amount of work in an area called "feature recognition" where they analyze the arrangement of surfaces to determine which things are "holes" and which things are "outer surfaces" for which parts to throw away and which parts to keep in situations like that.

It takes quite a lot of effort to make something like that which works on anything other than the very most simple situations.

So that "untrim" method shown above will probably be the main way to do that in MoI for quite some time yet.

There will probably also be another way to get that done in the future by editing the history of operations, if you have done the boolean operations inside of MoI (rather than importing the full model already done I mean).
