Compound tool position calculator
Yuriy, is there any chance of adding a calculator that will take the angle of the compound and an additional scale reading to calculate the tool position on the lathe?  If I feed my X axis to a set dimension, then feed in with the compound on a 30 degree angle, I really have no idea where the tip of my tool is anymore without doing some trig. It would be great if the DRO did the trig for me. I know DROPros has a unit with this feature, although I'm not certain how it works in regards to the display of that position.
