Hi Jaap,
Maybe the "matrixget" command would meet your needs; it writes out a  
transformation matrix, 3x3 rotation matrix + translation vector, for  
each model:

You can write it to a file or just to the Reply Log.  If to a file,  
you can later apply the transformation(s) by reading the file with the  
"matrixset" command (same man page as above).
