Couldn't find a way to do this so mentioning here, as the cut width of v bits for milling pcbs depends on several details such as angle, tip size and depth of cut, why not adding it as a automatic calculation in the UI given those details. Maybe add also a offset value to fin adjust fina value.

This is a good idea. Personally I don't have the time right now, but this is a good and easy project for anyone looking to get started with contributing code to the project. JP

Cool thanks for the feedback. I've started to play with the flatcam plugins to see how they work and hope to get something working soon.
