    You have to be more specific.

    There really isn't anything in the post regarding the tool diameter. The toolpaths and geometry for the toolpaths are all set when you program a toolpath with a specific tool in the software. The post doesn't do much regarding that. All its doing is setting planes, taking the toolpath geometry, g & m codes and structuring the program for the specific machine.

    He is looking for the mastercam's variable name(s) for the "operation tool & dia" so he can call those from the code to do a routine tool inspection e.g. after tool change.
