Release Notes November 14, 2017:
- PanelingTools is now compiled against the public Rhino 6 SDK. This will help with quick updates and improvements independent of the Rhino release cycle.
- Paneling data is compatible between Rhino 6 Beta and earlier Rhino versions.
- ptGridExtrude1 allows defining a rotation base point when you set a rotation axis (from point becomes the base).
- Fixed the paneling output of partial patterns when the grid does not extend far enough to accommodate a full unit pattern.
- ptWeaveGrids has now an option to weave by columns. It used to support weaving by row only.
- Writing a reading managed patterns has been re-written.
- Fixed a number of various bugs.
