spring-tied interface
crashes preview on export

Hi Steve,

It seems that if anything other than facets are selected for a spring-tied interface between two objects, preview crashes on export.

The fix is to make sure you select facets only when defining the interface, but I'm sure this isn't obvious to most people. It wasn't to me.

Keep up the great work!

Hi Steve,

The master surface indeed has to be a surface or facet selection, but the slave surface can be a node selection. In any case, I just made a change so that PreView will no longer crash (although it will not export the spring-tied interface correctly if the selections are not assigned correctly.) That said, please know that this interface is considered obsolete and users should create the springs themselves. Hopefully, with the new spring creation tools this will be much easier than before.
