Open QT2DD

Click Machine Options
Select Imperial
Click OK
Click options
Select Machine Tooling
Select a tool.
Change the tip angle say from 65deg to 55deg
Click OK in tool window
Click OK at bottom of the page
Click options
Select Machine Tooling
Select the tool whose tip angle has just been changed.
Value is shown is tool angle in degrees multiplied by 25.4 ie 1397 for 55deg and 1651 for 65deg.

Thankyou for that excellent writeup of how to repeat the issue. We're looking to fix this at the moment.

There is a new version released, V1.35, which keeps the angle value of tools regardless of the measurement type. We'll look at the import conversion issue next.

Sorry, but I missed the last post.

I've now loaded Version 1.35 and can confirm that the tip angle is now stored correctly.

Many thanks, Max.
