Regarding symmetry or unique features to determine orientation:  Is there an option to ignore orientation?  Some applications will not require a specific orientation of the part in the full +/- 180 degree space.

Simple example is a cylinder.  If all we need to do is pick the object and move it  (all we care about is location not orientation) then the system can choose the best way to pick the object.  For something like a cube, it would just need to rotate +/- 45 degrees maximum to pick up the cube on a given side. 

It might be very useful to have an OPTION in the wizard to choose whether the user cares about model orientation.  Does this make sense?
Yeah, this is going to be essential for some customers that are picking up blank pieces to be loaded into a machine for cutting.
