Tool Libraries

Three different types of cutting tool collections are currently supported.  

Each of these is described below:

Document Tools

These are the tools that are saved with the document.  These tools will be loaded when the VisualCAMc tab is loaded.

Default Tool Libraries

These are the tool libraries that are saved on the VisualCAMc server and cannot be modified.  However, tools can be copied from these Default Tool Libraries into the current document and also saved or exported to local tool libraries.  You can use the Default Tool Libraries as starter tool libraries.

Local Tool Libraries

These are tool library (*.csv) files that are saved in your local file system.  You may share these Local Tool Library files across multiple users.
