Notching Tool for Rhino

This script also was created because of my coffee table idea. After creating and flattening all of the necessary sections, I still need to add notches to each of them in order for the entire thing to fit together. I did the math, and it came out to over 900 individual notches that needed to be made. Also, the notches would have to change in thickness every time I wanted to use material of different thickness. Instead of going through that painful process, I wrote this script which did it all for me. It will correctly place however many notches are necessary at whatever thickness you specify. It even has an option to notch either to top half or the bottom half.
