    Having proper tool representation in simulation would be really nice.
    Just need to find a way to speed it up a bit then.

    I think the current idea with voxels is the right way to go. But it needs improvement. I would really like to see a faster and higher resolution of the removal solid. Then the output of one operation could be used as the input for the next and we could finally do 'REST' machining

    When is the feature freeze for 0.19?

    @sliptonic
    Nothing announced. I think a lot depends on what happens with RealThunder's link branch.
    Merging that is an enormous piece of work and Werner/Yorik and others need to be comfortable with it.

    I have a play with it. It's super impressive.

    I've followed the discussions in the dev forum about it but they always end up losing me. It's deep.
    Must take a bigger brain than the model I'm currently equipped with.

    I didn't try following it. I know my place. 😂

    @mlampert is that image any better?

    @mlampert
    @dubstar-04 sorry for not being clear in my comment, if you look at the model I sent you Saturday night you'll notice that there is an additional crest - which is also the reason why it doesn't fit into the current Tool data schema
    I don't think there's any value in trying to shoehorn this bit into the existing data structure - probably better to focus on a new structure which doesn't have any limitations

    @mlampert I understand it's a bit of a token gesture. I just thought it would be nice to have a representative tool in for your new Op.

    @mlampert
    @dubstar-04 got'cha, thanks for that, much appreciated - this is not a very important op though and it's not worth to create more legacy data for it

    @sliptonic do you have Linuxcnc and heels tool tables you could share?

    What is our policy on breaking users save files?
    sliptonic
    @sliptonic
    Depends on what you mean. If you're talking about breaking their Path job configuration or operations, I don't worry too much about it. It doesn't take that much effort to reconfigure an op/job. Obviously don't break their design
    IMbackK
    @IMbackK
    gotcha, yes im talking about breaking the operations

    I figure until there's at least a '1' before the decimal point in FreeCAD's release, anything goes.

    @dubstar-04 Yorik added you as a dev to mantis and I assigned the ticket

    Has anyone had chance to have a look over the multi tooltable PR?
    sliptonic
    @sliptonic
    I glanced at the code but haven't built it yet. I'll try to build this afternoon

    @dubstar-04
    @sliptonic thanks.

    @dubstar-04 What would it take to add a tool to copy tools from one tool table to another? Drag/drop would be great but even just a select and copy would meet minimum.
    Daniel Wood
    @dubstar-04
    @sliptonic it's on the to do list!
    Duplicate and move
    @sliptonic have you managed to have a play with the multi tool table?
    sliptonic
    @sliptonic
    yeah. Playing with it tonight.
    Looks good to me.
    Any reason not to merge?
    Daniel Wood
    @dubstar-04
    Ah great! Thanks for taking the time to have a look at it. I'm feeling a bit nervous that I've put a fair bit of effort in to it and it will get knocked back.

    @sliptonic
    Not sure where @mlampert is with tools. I know he was starting to sketch out ideas for the new concept. But this looks like a net add from where we are. If you're around Markus, please weigh in.
    Daniel Wood
    @dubstar-04
    @sliptonic if you don't find any issues and it gets merged i will make another PR while your away with the copy stuff. I'm away now until next week.
    @sliptonic @mlampert this PR is just the first step as discussed here: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=26290
    The next step is what @mlampert has been thinking about; the tool definition.
    Daniel Wood
    @dubstar-04
    @sliptonic i see both PR got merged!
    sliptonic
    @sliptonic
    Yes. Just merged the second one
    Daniel Wood
    @dubstar-04
    That's great thank you! Did you spot anything of concern?
    sliptonic
    @sliptonic
    No but I leave that job to the users :-)

    All the PRs? Its been a busy week!

    @sliptonic
    It has been busy. I've approved some of the PRs already. Trying to get me head around others
