The Proving Ground Meme Contest!

How do you know something is going mainstream?  There is a meme about it....!

In order to add a touch of humor and participation on this page, I am holding a meme contest for computational design.

The rules:
  1. The meme should reflect some aspect of computational design (BIM, scripting, parametric design, all are fair game!)
  2. The meme should be funny.
Using a completely subjective and unscientific method, I will select my favorite 4 and post them to this blog with appropriate artist credit.  If I happen to meet winners in person, I will buy them a cookie or beer.

I will also create a complete Facebook gallery of all submissions.  

Deadline:  Indefinite.

Resources:  Feel free to use tools like Mememaker... or make your own with 10 seconds of Photoshop!

LunchBox v0.252

TPG tools are now going to go under the banner of LunchBox.  Why? ..because it's catchy... and I was in the mood for a sandwich!  ...It seems like a good name for a miscellaneous utility plug-in, right?

In this new version, I have added some new components for mathematical forms and paneling.  I also created a component for baking objects to layers.

The plug-in is available at the usual location on the wiki...!
