Pinholes for perforated facade

I quickly tested this fast perforation method by @dale

It seems that the outline needs to be a Rhino surface in order to work.
It gives me about 7mins for the current outline and the 10.000 holes you had in the file (on an old laptop).
This includes the meshing and mesh Offsetting… The thickening seems to be the slowest operation by far.
The perforations are generated only in about 10secs. But for display and file saving purposes the meshes are way more lightweight to use.

Also note that in order for the _PlanarSrf to work on your file, you need to increase the File tolerance to 0.001. Otherwise I couldn’t get the outline and holes recognised to be on the same plane.
