Dimensioning

As Jeff said earlier, we now have drafting-style dimensioning of the loaded program, which I started on a whim Friday. This shows the size of the work envelope in all dimensions, as well as the minimum and maximum values in the program. I think these numbers are all useful in setting up a workpiece and deciding where to set the zero position before machining. What Jeff doesn't know is that I've finished what I think is the necessary polishing and merged the changes into HEAD. They will be in tonight's snapshot.
