Edit HSMWorks/HSMXpress Expressions

Most of the parameters in HSMWorks has default values based on expressions involving other parameters, such as the tool diameter (referenced by tool_diameter in an expression). You can enter a new expression directly in a parameter field or you can modify an existing expression by using the Edit Expression option.

To edit an expression, right-click in the parameter field and choose Edit Expression, or simply press F2 while the parameter field has focus.
