Tangential Knife support

If Tangential Knife Control is activated, myCNC control software will automatically add the Knife Lift Up/Down and knife rotation to follow path direction functions, so standard 2D (or 2.5D) G-code programming is enough to run a tangential knife with myCNC.

The tangential knife setup also allows for a camera and multiple other tools (such as a creasing wheel and a half-knife) to be used on the same machine by specifying their offsets from the original knife. Tools which do not require tangential cutting support can also be used in the same job (such as spindle, camera, etc, marker, etc).
