API: Bars Under The Curtain Walls

Hello there,

We already know, that the panels with a calculation model curtain wall must be placed only on the panel's or opening's edge. We should create dummy bar on the bottom of the curtain wall to take one to the calculation model in any other case. If model has a lot of curtain walls (for example model from Revit) this is a problem. 

To solve this issue, I have written small add-on: just select necessary panels in Robot and press Create button. It has some limitations: panels should have object type Contour with 4 vertices and 2 vertices at the bottom must have similar Z coordinates. Only panels 1 and 2 will be taken into account:


When process has finished, created bars automatically highlighted in the model. Moreover, user will obtain the list with numbers of panels which was not taken into account.
