Cutter Shapes

New cutter shapes with variable radius profiles are supported for NC in version 14.  Commonly called Barrel, Lens, or Oval tools, you can use these to program, rough, finish and 5-axis production toolpaths.  Often these cutter shapes will reduce toolpath steps or leave a better finish.
