Sections: Geometry - Drawing ; Edit

Follow_me-like tool, slightly different than the native one.
- No need to construct a circle to follow - you just need an axis line.
- Multiple faces can be lathed in one pass.
- The arcs/circles of the lathe paths remain intact, for easy editing using the 'cardinal points' etc.
- No nasty 'follow me' end points when you only lathe an arc.
- Tests for 'inside out' forms and re-orients the faces if necessary.
- Automatic grouping with the local group axes aligned with the form (axis -> Z)
- Doesn't destroy the original profile geometry (unless you want it to)
