Mesh Bed Layout app

I know there is an application/browser app out there for creating a round mesh bed layout but is there one for square/rectangular bed shapes? It would be really helpful for creating an efficient layout of probe points.
@UnderDoneSushi is all recent versions of the firmware you use M557 to define the grid for mesh bed levelling. No requirement to enter all the points into a bed.g file.

Sorry to be more specific, is there a layout generator similar to this one created by @dc42
Not specifically for getting the exact location to probe but for an efficient layout/spacing of the grid on different sized print beds:
(just found out it was coded by DC42)
I have a Printrbot Simple Metal with a bed size of 250mmx150mm and just want a visual for seeing the layout.
There's no layout app that I'm aware of, but setting it up isn't particularly difficult.
To maximize the X and Y positioning you simple subtract your probe offset from the maximum reachable bed size.
And to maximize the spacing, you can set the value very low (like a spacing of 1) and send the M557 command in the gcode console. It will reply with a calculated maximum spacing value that will maximize the available 441 points. Thought a spacing of 20mm for a 300mm size bed would be quite detailed.
