Summary

This command is used to access the Tool Table dialog, from where you can define the drill/mill/rout tools that are available for use in the current document.

Access

This command is accessed from the CAMtastic Editor by choosing the Tables » NC Tools command from the main menus.

Use

After launching the command, the Tool Table dialog will appear. By default, the table will contain a list of tools based on any imported NC Drill file, otherwise it will appear empty. Use the table to add/edit tool definitions. Up to 99 tools can be defined, each with a unique Dcode, starting from D9500.

Use the Save and Open buttons to save the current tool table definition, or load a previously saved definition, respectively. Tool data is stored in a Mill/Rout Table Settings file (*.mts).

Tips

  1. Hovering within the various columns of the table grid will cause a tool tip to appear, with more information about that entry .
