Thanks for the suggestions.

Thanks for the suggestions. Yes, both can be done. The #2 will need some way to save data in the scene or the object, so its not a simple job, but I will try.

Cool

Hi this is cool

I have a suggestion to make your great tool much better.

1. The Script create meshes whit out a question, better is, had a create button.
2. Script do not edit the models already created when run again, Edit selected or some thing like that will be cool.
