@dc42 It's not necessary since most modern cam software can already do the cutter radius compensation. It might de useful for older cam.

Tool usage log for cnc
Hi, it would be really nice to get something like the filament usage history but for end mills on a cnc.
The idea is that we can enter the end mills we have like it's done for the filaments. And as we select which end Mill is used for a job, it's usage time is logged. So we get an idea of how much tool life is left / how much tool live we got when it breaks.
It's really useful for making wise tool purchase in the future and keep track of our inventory
