Python Plugin, grid

Hello guys:
    This is the first plugin i upload here. This plugin allows users create a new type of poly primitive that is grid-like. By using it, you can create a solid poly net or a cube full of holes. 
    I tried to make this plugin more like utilities of Maya. So i created the attribute editor template, icons (shown in shelf,outliner,hypershade) and added menu item in Create->Poly Primitives menu.

    How to setup it:
    1. Unzip the package, there are two package, one for Maya 2011, the other for Maya 2012. Unzip the one you want.
    2. Now you have 4 folders. AETemplates, icons, plug-ins, scripts.
    3. Open your Maya install folder, for example mine is C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Maya2012.
        Cut-Paste the contents from: Unziped AETemplates ----> Maya install folder\scripts\AETemplates
                                                       Unziped icons ---> Maya install folder\icons 
                                                       Unziped plug-ins ---> Maya install folder\bin\plug-ins
    4. Open  "Documents-Maya"
          Cut-Paste the contents from: Unziped scripts ---> Documents\maya\2012(or 2011)-x64\scripts
        if there is already a userSetup.mel open it using notepad and copy the content of mine and append to yours.

    5. Open Maya, go to Window-> Settings/Preferences -> Plug-in Manager.
        check the Loaded and Auto load boxes of

     6. Go to Create -> Polygon Primitives you will find Grid from the bottom of this menu. and enjoy it.
