This step-by-step tutorial teaches you how to create a tool database in Mastercam 2017's Tool Manager.
We begin by creating and editing a new cutting tool and holder. From there, we show you how to correctly assemble them and make further edits. Other topics include how to import one tool or an entire Mastercam library into the new database. As well you will learn how to import a .dxf tool file (we use examples from Iscar and Sandvik) and then make any geometry modifications necessary to match Mastercam requirements.
