Originally a direct descendant, pyTectonics began as a python port for the Plates model. It has since been rewritten to the point the two share little in common.
In a case of convergent evolution, pyTeconics has come to adopt several methods similar to those in PlaTec. Plates, for instance, are respresented in both models as grids on which cells are mapped to represent crust. Nevertheless, PlaTec remains a 2D model with all the costs and benefits that imparts.
