Conformal_channel_(New Version)

by Tom Paul in Scripts and Addons

Creating conformal channels around mesh objects which can be used for boolean operations ( eg: with molds or structures that require a cooling channel) . The created mold with these channels can be manufactured by Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing). 

This version can generate three channel types named as 'Mod1', ' Mod2 ' and 'Mod3'.

Compared to the previous version this version applies implicit modelling through Metaball objects which ensure complex channel structures with smooth blending for Mod2 and Mod3.
