Hi,

It would be great to have a rope / chain tool with non-destructive workflow.

It should come with some preset models of ropes / chains, but as LWCad allows, create our own too.

For ropes, it could be interesting to be able to specify the number of strands and bundles, rotation, ...

I would love to see support to import STP or some other cad format since we now have spline support. At the moment I'm using MOI3d to convert to a 3d support, but being able to directly import would be awesome.

Export would be nice too, but not as high a priority for me.
