Hello Heartman, I'm experimenting, studying and having fun with your GREAT script!
Please could you explain a couple of constructions I can't quite understand:
1) In "fixation box legs" what's the need for the last "cube" (a bar de facto) joining the two legs that is then subtracted from the hexagons?
the hexagons are joined in the lower part (or upper part) by the side of the shell: why that subtracted bar?!? Morever the bar doesn't intersecate with hexagons: what sense has such subtraction?
2) There's a reason for the large dimension of the cube used to cut 45° the legs?
