Setting a "target" value
#1
Not really sure what to call what I want to do so I'll give a lathe example. A cleanup cut is made on a piece of stock & the diameter is determined to be .303. The desired diameter is .241. Is there a way to enter the difference of .062 (target) and work towards zero?

Lee,
This is the "set dimension" function. You can long-press the axis and type .241-.303 ( I think that dialog supports arithmetic expressions). 
I don't have the app in front of me right now. Will double-check tomorrow.

Thank you
Yuriy

Thanks for the reply - I'll check it out on Thu when I have some more shop time.
