This is a bit confusing, the 0.17 development branch doesn't have a "machine" anymore. Could you post the version info you get through the help menu please?
If i edit the default or ad my own changing the diameter, it works but the tool is no longer visible.
The tool visibility can be controlled by the visibility of the TC.
I am also struggling to position the start position for the tool which i think is related am i missing something or is this a current bug ?
The starting position is controlled by the OP you are using. Not all ops currently support specifying a start position but most do. Which op are you using.
