Max Depth variable

Post by randyr »

When the mouse hovers over a tool path, the max depth is displayed. I'd like to be able to use that value in a post processor but can't find a variable that has it. Is there one? If not, please consider adding it in a future version.

Thanks,

randy

Randy...
Have you tried the "Z_MIN" or "Z_MAX" ? PP editing guide, page 9

Yup...I have tried those...but they just give the max & min values of the material...which could otherwise be calculated using other variables. But...thanks.

What there should be are 6 variables that give the max/min of the toolpath.
