Hello everyone,
  I have been trying a way to find an appropriate feature that automatically check base on ZDEPTH so I can have the right OVER ALL LENGTH (my stick out).  I checked with CHECK HOLDER and it works only 1 toolpath.  Is there any simular function that it would check all of the OVER ALL LENGTH instead of ONE BY ONE like the CHECK HOLDER feature does?


Recap: If ZDEPTH  = A value then the OVER ALL of tool length is A+.25".  I would like something like CHECK HOLDER feature does it but all of the tools instead of one by one.


Thank you.

There's a thread for this with some really good info on how to go about it with either a stack or buffer. You'll be able to pull the zmin for each tool and add whatever clearance.
