Levering items to printer bed

Hi,

Need you help... in Meshmixer I am trying to get multiable items to  position them to the same level of the print bed. Is there a way to highlight all items then request them to auto level themselves to the level on the print bed? 

 

In the past tried to do this manually with not much success... even being out say 2mm the print crashes and filament goes everywhere.

Two options:

Either ANALYSIS/LayoutPacking: This moves the bases of all objects in the scene to the ground, but nests them too(means the position in XZ is changed).

Or run ANALYSIS/Overhangs for each object one by one. Set AngleThresh to zero and hit GenerateSupport. This setting does not generate any supports but moves the object to the ground (assuming Y-Offset is zero) while keeping the position in X and Z.
