    Tool Life Management, recording tool runtime in tooltable, feature request

    Hello Planet CNC Team,

    I'm currently looking into a way to record the runtime of my tools to get a better understanding about the tool life.
    With some extensions to the M3, M4 and M5 scripts it was quiet easy to calculate the spindle on time for the current tool.
    Now I'm seeking a way to store this runtime and to accumulate it with previous runtimes.
    The Tooltable offers Custom Parameters that seem to be perfect for this task. Unfortunately they are read only.
    Would it be possible to implement an enhancement to make those custom parameters writable?

    Best Regards,
    Klaus
