Tool Table Report

Postby Vmax549 » Sat Mar 10, 2018 6:04 am

I guess since we now have a tool table we may need a tool table report 8-)

AND I guess we may need to be able to IMPORT your Cams tool table ??

AND probably need to be able to export the UCCNC tooltable in CSV format ??

OK I successfully imported a whole bunch of Frog tools into UCCNC's ToolTable from a CSV file.

I just need to see what formats different CAMs output for a ToolTable export file.

IF you have a CAM that can output a ToolTable export file PLEASE load a copy of yours here so I can see IF I can do a generic import OR if I need to do specific imports for different Cams.

AND tell me what CAM you used to do it.

OK that is the entire tool libray (;-) No way that is going to fit into UCCNC :o

Is there a way in Fusion to export only teh Job or project tools. AND do you have any option as to doing it as a CSV file ??

Thanks Alex is this the entire tool library or just a JOB summary of tools required.

I find it amazing that NONE of teh programmers of modern CAMs have ever even driven by a machine shop much less understand the need to export a proper tool table.

There is NO WAY all that info is going to be able to be imported into a control :shock: Or for that matter be USED by the controller

All that is required is

Tool#
Tool Diam
Tool Type
Tool Description
Tool Material

At the bare minimum you need

Tool#
ToolDiam
Tool Description

OH Well :roll:
