Reading OBJ Mesh Files from K3DSURF in Grasshopper

I have created a custom scripting component that reads OBJ mesh files created in K3DSURF and reconstructs a triangular mesh within Grasshopper. Currently, the component will only read triangular OBJ meshes.

This allows for a more seamless workflow between K3DSURF and Grasshopper by eliminating the need to import the mesh into Rhino and then link the mesh into Grasshopper. If the OBJ file is updated from K3DSURF, the change is immediately affects the Grasshopper script.
