Frame Builder V1_5 Release by NateLiqGrav
Insert profiles into Alibre Design from the user's library of profiles. Build frames, miter, trim, and extend profiles!

Fixes:
  • Fixed to now run (instead of error) when Alibre Design is installed on a different path or drive other than the default. If you don't have this problem then I wouldn't recommend upgrading to this version as that is the ONLY change.

For frame members created by edge or two points - unless an alignment face is selected the frame member will freely rotate about the main axis. Select an Optional Alignment Face at area #1.

Profile offsets, rotation, and mirroring may be done in area #2.

Rotation specifically by using the slider #3 to enter the degrees to rotate counterclockwise. By default the slider will stick to 45° increments or can be switched to 5° increments by holding down the shift key. For finer control the value may be typed into the box to the left of #3.
