It can quickly add box tabs to objects.

Not a replacement for the excellent Tabbed BoxMaker extension, this is just a quicker solution for when you just want one or two sides of tabs on an existing structure, with matching slots.

Also, there are definitely some bugs - I've got a few fixes coming up when I have some spare time, and feel free to report issues on Github. I'll also try to check this forum for the next little bit. So, check back often, for now!
(Especially kerf correction - I fixed that last night, but have not pushed changes just yet)

Done!

I was waiting on some final tests before I finalised it.

Thats really neat, could be interesting used in conjunction with the openSCAD export to make 3d printable boxes.
