Free tool for making custom tree supports in Maya

I've written a free tool to make custom editable tree supports for FDM printers, using Autodesk Maya.  I've had mixed luck with automatic tree support solutions (such as in Meshmixer and Cura) and have found this to be a good solution in some cases.  You can adjust the supports after creation, including changing their thickness, bending them around, etc.  There's a button to import a fake Prusa print bed (for sizing purposes) and even a 1 click STL exporter that will rotate your models to be Z up and export the model and supports to different files, if desired. Let me know if you can think of any other useful features you'd like to see.

Here's where you can download the script:

Here's a video about the script, showing off its features:
