6D knife module

A 6D Knife operation is added to the configuration. The operation works in the 6D plane and is similar to the 5D contouring operation. Every point of tool path, the knife blade must be directed along the motion. It requires all 6 degrees of freedom. The active machine must have a minimum of three linear and three rotary axes. Very often, industrial robots are used for this operation. If the machine schema doesn't support all degrees of freedom, then the generated tool path will be incorrect.
