|Summary||0003336: Tool Data Struture, Library, and Editor overhaul|
|Description||Tool Geometry is used in tool path calculation but also in simulation.|
The current tool definition includes a number of properties like
cutting edge angle
cutting edge height
Only a couple properties are used at all and others are confusing, contradictory, or useless.
A new structure is needed that can cover many different types of tools including drills, endmills, lathe tools, shell cutters, fly cutters, and others.
|Steps To Reproduce||An ideal solution will provide an extensible data structure that allows new kinds of tools to be added over time.|
The data gathered should drive a parametric modeling of the tool representation for simulation and visualization.
Tool definitions and attributes should use industry standards whenever possible.
|Tags||No tags attached.|

I suggest that we try to implement this standard:
ISO 13399 (Cutting tool data representation and exchange)
ISO 13399 has come up before:
The problem has been getting a copy of the standard. It's one of those that is not freely available and expensive.
An ideal solution would be to implement iso 13399 as a standalone python library that could be used in FreeCAD but also other projects like linuxcnc
My university library has a copy of the standard. Also, to follow a post on the forum, I've been able to download some documents from Sandvik on the file structure associated with the standard. I probably won't be able to implement a python library myself, but I'd be willing to help.
