Feature Based Machining, Axial Stepover, Exact

Hello there,


I am working on the hole_making.HOLE_MILLING operation. I am trying to set the Path Settings -> Axial -> Axial Stepover as "Exact". I find that in the Add-on, I can only set it as other types (Constant, Multiple, Passes, %Flute Length), but cannot find type "Exact". Although type Constant and type Exact sound the same, but they may create different machining paths (Please find the attached example). I have tried teaching this operation, but couldn't find the type either.

Axial Stepover Type = Exact is not yet supported by Create Feature Process for CylinderMilling. This is a caveat. I created an internal PR to fix this issue.
As a workaround, you can fix this Stepover type in your operation template. Thank you !
