Converting Depth of Cut units from %tool to partunits

Pioneer

Hi All,

 

I have the following scenario.

Operation: Rough Turn

Cut Depth: Constant 

Maximum Distance : 0.001 in (OR) %Tool

The units for Maximum distance can be "in" or "%tool"

 

I have a program that gets me the value of Maximum distance and the units. 

However, I would like to convert %tool to inches to do some calculations. 

e.g.: 10 %Tool = ____in

 

I am not able to find any API that  converts %Tool into inches.

Kindly suggest if there is any method of doing it.

 

Regards,

Faisal Ahmed

Multiply the %Tool value times the insert diameter of the tool.
