Grasshopper custom component / by Kai Zhu

While at work today I had the issue of wanting to attach plane data to rhino geometry using the Elefront plug in. However, you can’t apply a plane object as an attribute, Elefront only accepts text as valid. Using these two components that I've created using some native Grasshopper as well as a small amount of Python scripting. PlaneToStr and StrToPlane lets you attach plane data in text form to baked Rhino objects then allow you to extract the data from the baked object back into a plane object to be used in Grasshopper later on.
