I would like to be selected to try out the "new" cutter comp that is available.
I started running CNC machines in about 1986. When there were no cad programs available (unless you worked for NASA or GM).
Cutter comp back then was very useful for programming a tool path to follow outside or inside a given path and not having to do the math to offset half the tool radius.
Just program the path and use G41 to climb around the programmed path to cut a pocket.
Usually it was "G41 D17 etc..." and I could measure the pocket and make an offset in the "D17 register" and cut it a little bigger to make an easy finish cut while using the same program.
