This script allows you to specify two splines to create a segmented surface. It then derives the necessary KRL code (.src and .dat) files to drive a Kuka Robot equipped with a hotwire cutter. For more information, please see the YouTube video (slightly outdated version of the script, but illustrates similar functionality).

CAD Cleaner

A utility script to weld vertices and clean up smoothing in imported/converted CAD models. Works on Editable_Mesh objects in selection. Does not work on objects with an Edit_Mesh or Edit_Poly modifier applied. I use this to do a first-pass quick cleanup on imported SolidEdge models; it helps eliminate duplicate faces and odd smoothing groups.
