Heavily Based on scripts by :
# Name: export_custom_normal.rfs - Author: Gregory Ecker
# Name: pdc_import.rfs - Author: Jorge Medina (ships with Real Flow)
# Testing and guidance:
Gregory Ecker, Jason Porath, Vishang Shah, Braam Jordaan, Jeffery Tan

Usage :
# When the script is run, it will open a 'filedialog' window. Choose a .pdc file (start file in a pdc sequence).
The script will write out .bin files in the same directory, in "particleShape_custom####.bin" format.

# On MacOS - you can run it using Python Launcher
This script has been heavily commented for understanding for starters like myself. This was my first shot at python tools, attempted to basically handshake the scripts i found and glued them together with a UI. If you see any part of the code which can be more optimized pls drop me a line at

Tested no Windows, but should work on Mac OS and linux too. Any machine which can run python should be able to run this script. TkInter module is required to run the tool. See header in the script for details.
