First public release of PCL PartsLab

Cosmetic updates, final build for public release - September 17, 2016


First public release of PCL PartsLab

Manage invalid instances of objects that should be capable of hosting Parts

In some circumstances, one or more instances of objects that should host parts may have geometry or other abnormalities that do not allow the Parts function to create that Part. In this case you will be given the option to create Parts from all the valid instances from selected tree nodes and skip those invalid instances. Because PartsLab must examine every object instance targeted to receive Parts, this will take a little more time to run when compared to applying the 'Make Parts' function to everything in that selected node.
