FS Box joint; Why maximal 12 pins?

@NeilCooke,

I like to use more than 12 standard and dovetail pins with your FS Box Joint. However, is it correct that the limit is 12. Is there a reason for that?

    It was only there so that if you accidentally typed a very large number you wouldn’t have to sit there while it regenerates. I’ll change it to 200.

    I have absolutely no idea it was so long ago. I can change it though.

    Increased to 24 hope that's enough.

    @NeilCooke,

    In the configurable box that I made I had pins of 8 mm and edge lengths of >399 mm, which needs >24 pins.
    So, Is there any limit needed and why? In other words: can the limit be removed?
