Export presets

Export presets

Modeler includes presets that allow you to quickly change export settings for various applications. The settings that each preset impacts are detailed below. Settings that are not listed for a preset will not be changed when the preset is applied. For example, if Up axis is not listed for a given preset, then applying that preset will not impact the Up axis.
