I have developed a fairly simple gadget that creates a new layer and then adds a contour generated from a series of LineTo commands that completes at the starting point, leaving a closed line object.
What I would dearly like to add to this is the ability to add tabs at very specific locations on the contour so that when I apply a toolpath, the tabs are integrated into the toolpath.
From the API documentation (page 58), I see that I can add tabs to the Contour object (using the :InsertToolPathAtTabAtPoint method).
What I don't understand is: where are these tabs saved? Is it part of the Contour object itself that will become visible when I apply a toolpath the to object?
Or, do I need to somehow apply them at toolpath creation?
