Magic points

Enabled magic points in the application at least for line and rectangle drawing.
Will continue with adding the magic points for solids like extrude and also improving the current code, task estimated to take half a day. The geometric solver will be improved also with coplanar detection, that would enable using plane type magic points - used for example at making extrusions with the same height.
Will also work at implementing a test plugin that receive info through pipes form the application.

The technical solution for the magic points was to implement a solver pipe which receives events from the mouse 3d pipe and passes the points through the solver (it also displays and hides magic points when something detected). The line and rectangle drawers receive the 3d points from the solver pipe.
