Following up on Tool Change Descriptions
It would be great if CM ingested the data exported by the F360 post processor.
% (1001) (Machine) ( vendor: Carbide 3D) ( model: XL) ( description: Shapeoko Pro) (T1 D=6.35 CR=0 TAPER=45deg - ZMIN=34.771 - chamfer mill) (T201 D=6.35 CR=0 - ZMIN=0 - flat end mill)
CM could now know that T1 is “chamfer mill” (I could have put a better description in F360 I suppose ), and during tool change popups, show that information.
I know it’s hardcoded for the C3D endmills like #201, but this would make things a bit easier for Amana/others.
(An alternative would be manually setting a list of tool #'s and descriptions within an options tab in CM, but slightly less user friendly as it needs to be kept in sync with the tool library in F360)
