    Known Issues
    Some struts are drawn twice (along the edges that intersect the parent platonic solid)
    - No visual effects, just extra processing time and extra (doubled up objects)

    If you make a mistake on the HTML form (i.e. enter data that does not meet validation criteria
    the form resets after you acknowledge the error so you would lose any other customization's

    Metal Hub flange plates that connect the hub to the strut are not currently drawn.

    Progress screen does not provide updates while system is computing

    Ok,
    After a series of lessons in humility after finding out the plugin failed, firstly just for SU 8 users and then everyone, I've committed some fixes and version 0.1.2 is now available from the web site.
