don't give a toss even if you use whatever since 2 billion

years ago....DOS.....pffft...

opinions are like...

software that comes with proper documentation is more succesfull.

a short text how to install would help a lot of beginners.

as i said im not even needing this info i use max since 4 for DOS.
i am trying to enhance things.. you are just rambling.

and if you take a second to think about your reply you will see the problem with your "logic"... or maybe not.

i find it surprising that it takes 2 secs..

to type in 'install MCG' into some search engine..

hit enter...but ppl can't spend 2 secs on that but instead spend 5 secs complaining the author hadn't done enough...

thx for the tool... but a

thx for the tool... but a little bit of info how to install and where to find it would go a long way.

not for me... but i find it always surprising that people put a lot of effort and time into their scripts and than take not 2 minutes to write a short readme.

no what I'm saying is...

allow the user to pick a circle say, or hexagon...ie a CLOSED shape.

At the moment, I think you are expecting the user to model half the shape, then you internally mirror it into a closed shape.

So simply, don't do internal mirroring, just let the user pick a circle, or star or Ngon...and that's it.

The algorithm used here does

The algorithm used here does not allow the use of non-symmetric forms.
I think it's possible to make a non-closed form, I'll try add later.

great stuff..!!!

except I'm not sure why you prefer to have the custom Shape as half then mirrored. Most likely, say someone wants to use a custom shape, they would use say a hexagon, or a star...or triangle (note all CLOSED splines)....if you force the user to 'model' an open spline (ie. half shape) then do an internal mirror...I think it's a bit unwieldy...anyway, your MCG, you can do whatever you like !!! I love the patterns tho !!!
