V and Chamfer bits
i am testing the software in trial mode, latest update, so i am entering my tools and checking how it works. Great job! Will definitely buy it soon.
I have some questions about:
1. the V tools and chamber mills
- The typical small V tools the V does not extend more than the shank width, so it would be great to see a tick box where the V or chamfer mill auto extends for given angle to the shank width, so there is no need to put flute length
I am a bit confused about the formula you use there? I read here how to calculate the flute length https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20060727150140AAbdOpR,
the formula for sides of Isosceles Triangle, so i came up with FL=((shank diam - tip diameter)/2)/cos((180-vertex angle)/2) if i am not mistaken. i ask cause at certain diameters your prog does not draw the form correctly/if i am not mistaken.
Anyway, it could be my mistake, so a tick box there will be nice.
2. Most of the V tools i use also have straight flute, certain length, shank diameter, so can profile and dig deeper in material + also apart of engrave. If something can be done there too? Of course if the tip is say 30 degree that is not needed cause speeding it up will break the tip, but say the tip is 90 degree, then it can dig deeper than the V, just an example
