Norm Johnson: 3rd-Party Developer - Rope Editor Plus

Plug-in Developer Norm Johnson has a strong background in development:
previously he worked in product testing for the high-end CAD entry, CATIA, for which he developed an interface for another programming environment, and for his current employer he develops business applications. On his own time he's been learning LightWave 3D and developing plug-ins for it since version 5.6. He has just released his first commercial LightWave plug-in, and it has folks fit to be tied - Rope Editor Plus lets LightWave users create and freely modify an incredible variety of meshes for rope, cable, springs, tubing and more. We spoke with Johnson about his background, how he came to be a LightWave developer, the knotty ins-and-outs of Rope Editor Plus, and his plans for the future.

Great interview and great plugin! I'd love to see rope editor included in Lightwave.

Also, it's good to see Newtek interview a "smaller" developer so that more people can hear about their products.

I just ordered the Rope Editor. Hope it doesn't take him long to reply.
