    Might sound stupid, but when defining a tool in estlcam, if it is a V-bit, for the diameter, i enter the full outside diameter?

    For example this one diameter should be setup as 12.7mm ?

    Correct.  V-bit assumes a point, so you give it the outer diameter and angle.

    Is the “V” bit you highlighted pointy? From the picture it looks like it has a slightly blunted point, maybe an optical illusion – Estlcam has an offset for that if your results don’t look as intended.
