More macros for tool definition
« on: March 21, 2020, 18:31:39 pm »

It would be fine if we can have a PP macro to extract tool flute length property for simulation.

a {$tool.flutelength} macro can alow to store data usable by cutviewer to define V tool with a flat tip like on this picture of a 3mm 30° with 0.1mm flat tip

the 5.41 must be hard coded in the macro because there is currently no way to catch the flute length data.

{$comment} TOOL/CHAMFER,{$tool.diameter},{$tool.veeangle},{$tool.length},5.41{$endcomment}

( TOOL/CHAMFER,3.0,30.0,20.0,5.41)
