    Bit Profiles That Don't Quite Match

    I have a bit, that doesn't exactly match the available bits in DeskProto for milling.

    For example, I have a this bit:

    1/32" Dia x 1" Cut Height x 6.2º Tapered Angle Ball Nose Tip x 1/4 Shank ZrN Coated 3-Flute Solid Carbide 2D and 3D Carving Router Bit
    The closest bit in the menu is a "Ball nose, radius 0.4 = diameter 0.8 mm"

    Can you add bits, or adjust existing ones with settings?

    Yes, you can add cutters. As long as they are one of the supported shapes. Look through the menus. (no idea how the menu I'd called in your language)

    Haben Sie vielen Dank!

    Your English is much better than my internet-assisted Deutsch!

    I was able to find the menu item and copy/edit a bit. The DeskProto "Help" was helpful when I wanted to know what the "free length" was.
