This script intends to simplify and speed-up the cutmesh creation of Polygon-based meshes/rigs. Please do make a copy of your mesh first and delete its history. Feel free to leave a comment.
The toolwindow has 4 easy-to-use buttons:
The ´Extract´ button cuts the user-selected polygonFaces from the mesh.
The ´Make Solid´ button closes off the selected polyMesh edges, making it look like a solid block and puts it into a seperate ´Cutmesh´ folder in the scene.
The ´Parent Constraint´ button does a parent constraint of the shift- selected curve/joint/anything and the selected mesh, renaming the resulting mesh into ´cutmesh_YourSelection´ for easy identification.
The ´Visibility On/Off´ button toggles the visibility of the cutmesh folder in the scene.
