ExtrudeTool for Glyphs

As I do more 3D modelling I’ve come to appreciate how extensive the tooling for 3D space is and in turn miss these tools when working with 2D vectors. Here’s the first venture into app development to bring 3D tools to 2D design:

This tool for Glyphs brings the notion of bevels and extrudes to 2D vectors. Path generation is tedious and at times cumbersome, even with the best UIs (as I find Glyphs’ to be). With extrusions, the process of leveraging primitives to work outwards is much easier.
