"Round to the value" option in Variable feature
When using expressions for part studio varible definition you often want a rounded value but all you can now is to use roundToPrecision() function from standart library. It is not only too long to type in a small text field of variable feature, but also it has no overloads for values with units. Parametric capabilities given by variables are significantly reduced by not having a direct way to get rounded value. So please add a checkbox "Round to the value" and an input field with the value to round up to. The formula should be universal for values with units and unitless, and shouldn't depend on units itself - for example value = round(value/roundStep)*roundStep, and should post process any result of expression, assigned to variable if "Round to the value" checked.
