Rougher Checkbox not displayed, replaced with generic checkbox


Hi I am using v3.18 of GWizard

I am used to seeing the rougher checkbox when the edit tool dialog is displayed (If I recall correctly)

I am not seeing the rougher checkbox, but now I am seeing a different checkbox – Generic

What am I missing?

What is generic?
Where did rougher check box go?

Steve, serrated roughers are now a geometry choice rather than a checkbox with the advent of the new pictorial tool menu.

Generic is an option for the Tool Crib that will leave you the ability to change diameter and a few other things with a crib tool.  It makes it easy to set up for a certain brand of cutter that you want to tweak the performance info on but don’t want to have to put every size into a Crib.
