I guess this will be a good start.

I spent a few hours and came up with this. I may add to it later but for now it will be fine. Does anybody know if I can force trailing zeroes ? For example look in the "MIN Z" column for Tool 7. This says "-1" I would like to force -1.000 http://img221.imageshack.us/img221/4396/97741998hp1.th.png
