    Anyway, for those who would be interested, here is a little fixture I built in order to be able to use some of its interesting capabilities :

    Nice holder Christophe. The programmer must be a DIY guy. It's nice to see a such useful app. Definitely worth downloading.

    Yes and can be really useful.
    I even have somewhere a picture of me measuring the tilt of the Leaning Tower of Pisa with it
    More seriously, there are lots of app useful in the shop, for instance I sometimes use "Lathe tool" wjich is great for threading data for instance.
