For those that are comfortable adding query parameters to their URL, you can also embed tool info and work coordinate info manually. We’d like to incorporate it into the Share dialog eventually, or perhaps keep the URL updated when making changes to tool lengths or work coordinates, but for now it’s a manual process and the parameters may change down the road. For now you can add one or multiple tool parameters set to JSON that describes the tool. For example, in our blog post about the release, we link to the Rook demo, which uses tools 15, which is a 3mm diameter tool and 16, which is a 4mm diameter tool, so the following settings are included in the link. Note that the radius of the tool is what is specified and it must be provided in inches, currently. Both use the default tool length offset of -3 (also must be in inches), but that also could be changed (but it must be included).
Also, the Rook demo uses the G54 offset to position the tool path appropriately, otherwise the tool path would be buried in the table. The wcs query parameter can be used to specify one or multiple work coordinate systems, as well. In this case we only change the Y offset, so it’s the only one that needs to be included, but any X, Y, Z, A, B value can also be specified:

So, with the options above the final link would be:
