We are having a problem creating a new tool library based on the tooling we have. We would like to be able to go to just our slimmed down tool library instead of sorting through BobCAD’s. I see the import feature but I don’t understand that file type.
Thanks for the help.
If you would like to remove all of the BobCAD generated tool, you could delete the files in for our default library and regenerate a blank one. Here are the locations and names of the files.
C:\BobCAD-CAM Data\BobCAD-CAM V24\Milling Technologies\Tools\Mill. You will then delete the ToolFile.mtools file.
C:\BobCAD-CAM Data\BobCAD-CAM V25\MillingTechnology\Tools\Mill. You will then delete the ToolFile.mtools file.
C:\BobCAD-CAM Data\BobCAD-CAM V26\Technology. You will then delete the ToolFile.mtools file.
Hi another option is to set up a tool crib based on the tools you have and save that.Then when you start a new drawing just load that. My machine has 16 pocket tool changer and I have some 40 commonly used tools all numbered in my machine tool table. I exported this and set up a tool crib by modifying tools from BC library making a tool crib which I saved and use.
