Input diameters not maintained in some areas.

The input tool diameter is not being maintained correctly in the "Library" or the "Hole Parameters" it is displayed correctly in the "Tool Geometry"

I just checked if i missed anything.
Nope what you describe is a planned behaviour.

Tool data like diameter and such is saved with tool.
And cut data is saved with cut.

Also make sure you download latest update, so that we are talking about the same thing.

Am using the latest version.

"planned behaviour"
If you say so :smile:
However, In my humble and somewhat (not totally) ignorant opinion, Tip Diameter in the tool Geometry read out should be matching that tools diameter with in the Library.

As is the only sorting with in the library is by default the tool#, do you have any plans at some point to add the ability to sort by column in the libraries, especially by diameter and material?

Did find a problem with in the library when right clicking on a tool and selecting "View Information", Simply saving or changing any parameter and saving causes the tool diameter value to the first tool previously selected and changed. The error was repeatable.

Thanks

Try as i might i could not get Tip Dia to be different from Tool library view.
Tip dia only shows once for every tool.
Cut data does not carry tool diameter because its the same diameter anyway.

I will add additional DB view type that will allow to filter/sort tools and cuts.

Regarding messing up tool data when Viewing and Saving tool info: this is a bug.
I will fix it ASAP.

Try creating a new drill with say a diameter .1256
Add tool, library will show .126, when you select the tool the "Tip Diam" will show the correct .1256

Ahh you mean rounding in the library view!
Okay, i will make it 4 digits

Hopefully it will require only a simple variable declaration change.

You must not require much sleep.

A version 0.021 has just been released
You can download it here.

All of the above reported issues have been fixed.
Also there is a picture in drilling operation that describes how effective diameter works

....
....
And yeah i do run that 1/4" drill at 10000RPM and 150 IPM in Aluminum :laugh:

Oh can't i brag a little?
I know many places where they dont run drills faster than 10ipm! In any material!

Just messing with you, dont doubt it one bit, I'm not that aggressive but also don't have the experience or RPM's :)

RPM rules in machining coupled with great machining calculator :)

I edit a new "Machine" in Machine Definition and set the hp to 1.5

The "Max Power" rounds up to 2 hp

I also saw that little issue creeped back in as well, likely a moot issues in reality.
