[Plugin] Face2Face - autoextrusion between faces

Sketchup Face2Face Tool

Here is a Sketchup plugin that starts from just two arbitrary faces. It generates the smooth continuous central path and adds the outside surfaces between the selected faces.

1 - Select any two faces at any orientations.
2 - Use menu selections Plugins, then Face2Face Extrusion.
3 - The plugin then generates the path, and the surface that fits between the faces.

The result is an blended extrusion with the shape of one of the faces.

Can the faces have any random orientation, or should they be "on axis" x and/or, y and/or, z? Suggestion,that your subject heading contain [Plugin], so that Jim's plugin hunter will pick it up to place it in the Plugins Index.

This tool is awesome :)
It works superbly. The only thing I encountered was that the two faces must be facing in opposite directions for the plugin to work (at least for me).
It makes things so much easier for me.

Thank you.
