ER, # 9262232, asking for neck diameter definition which would allow us to define a shanked tool with a reduced neck diameter.

What about Mill User Tool? You can define any tool profile, and set cutting length?

With how many milling processors can you use MILL_USER_DEFINED?

Because I guess only with couple of them, which doesn't make it too useful

User defined does not work on all operations, and will not output parameters for tool lists. It's also much more time consuming to key in the information. New users always seem to struggle with it too.

Note (with some limitations) Step drills can also be used, and step drills can be used in most operation types (at least the ones I have tested)

But still a PITA to define the tool.

And there are some tools you have to use workarounds for.

Multiple shank segments would still be a better option (plus, then NX knows what is shank and what is cutting tool)
