hello together and thank you for that extremly useful plugin! great work. I have one question: The smart Cluster component is using an k-mean algorithm for finding Groups of similar Panels. what is the Theory behind? I mean, what makes the Panels similar? there edge length, the Corner angles, both, etc? could you please explain me the priciple of that calculation? thanks a lot...
