Hi Igor

Hi Igor,
Sorry for your bad experience with version 2.0.
We introduced a lot of new features in this version so the script may be a little bit slower in some cases.
You can send me a sample scene at [email protected] and I'll check it for errors.

freezing, lagging, crashing with V2

Thank you for this beautiful script. I had beatuful time with this script in V1.4 but in 2.00 version everything in Max 2012 x64 seems slower and random freezing (when opening or closing Max) or crashing Max on rendering start now ruins the experience. What about those issues in your latest update (2.01), are they fixed?

top course is not proportioinate

I just downloaded this script and when I add my roof sections all of my top courses are way too long. I kept messing with the settings and all of the sudden it looks right. But, as you can see from the attachment, they aren't inserting correctly and it takes a ton of time to get it to look right and I'm not even sure what I did to correct them??

Hi, I have exactly the same issue as harumscarum. Is there a resolution to this please?.. Great script other wise tho.

unexpected weld

Does this happens when you set "Define Region" option to "None" ?
This may be a result of Max accuracy when calculating boolean operation with very small objects.
You can sand me this object to check it for errors at [email protected]
