Edited Post:

Version 1.2 of the Draw Metal plugins has been further updated to 1.2.1 and can be downloaded from http://www.drawmetal.com/download.

Many thanks to hebeijianke for providing the Simplified Chinese translation. Accommodating Simplified Chinese uncovered some shortcomings in the way translations were handled, so anyone using any translation is advised to install this version.

More details are available in the Release Notes:

Many thanks to Oxer for providing the Spanish translation and Christophe Plassais for the French translation.

Curve Maker now supports entering parameter values for the underlying mathematical equations to specify a curve. Once a curve has been drawn, its' parameters can be edited and the curve will be redrawn. The equation options for Archimedean, Bernoulli, Sine and Cosine include exponentiation parameters to enable generalizations of these curves to be drawn. Parameters also include Rotate, Flip and uniform Scale options. While you do not need to know any formulas, a basic understanding of math is helpful in using this approach for drawing a curve.

Using the parameter approach, you can now draw four more curves: the catenary, Cotes spiral, the hyperbolic tangent spiral and the hyperbolic cotangent spiral.

Taper Maker now supports more path positions (“lower left”, “lower right”, “upper left” and “upper right”)

Sweeeet! Thank you! I have been using curve maker for a while now. Unfortunately, I could not remember where I got it or who wrote it, since I apparently DL'ed it on one of those latenight sessions I get into when my other half is out of town on business.
I love the additions. These will be so handy, especially the caternary curve.

once again, Thank You!
