Default Type Tool to Mesh

First of all, congrats on the new Simplymaya LOOK feels cool!

I have a short question, can I somehow convert the new Maya 2017 "type tool" to a mesh?

The reason is, I need to use it as particle instances for particles!

You can instance the type tool mesh as is and keep editing it, the instances will update. Other than that, just delete history on the type mesh and then it's just regular old poly geometry.
