I was making mating parts that required some better tolerances. When I cut them out with the Shapeoko they were not working out properly after several iterations. What really helped was that on the above mentioned software, I could measure the virtually cut part to confirm that I was not miscalculating a tool path. This really helped cut down wasted time and material because I could confirm my dimensions before I cut, not just my path or shape. If you could add a feature like this, it would save a lot of people from their own mistakes, (beyond the ones CAMotics saves us from to begin with). I love using my Shapeoko for art when this type of thing is less of a problem, but for engineering projects it really came down to this.
