Active tool list help

Recommended Posts

I am stuck on trying to get the Insert Manufacturer Tool Code to show up on my tool list for a lathe tool.  I get the Holder Manufacturer Tool Code. In the attached picture, "EPICOR" is the holder tool code and the "EDP#" is supposed to be the insert tool code.  Any help would be appreciated.

You can search the XML file that is created by the tool list call, from the setup sheet dialog hold the CTRL button and left mouse click the green check button to have Mastercam generate a full XML file. The file will be located in your C:\Users\Public\Documents\Shared Mastercam 2022\common\reports\XML folder and you can search the tags. You can also take a look at the report help file and see the tag section.

Hi Mick,

Any reason the SZ section of the XML file is not being generated? This is keeping the part material tag from being outputted SZ/MATERIAL.

Thanks!

So I created the XML file and I go back and do another setup sheet, is still does not have my information.  What do I do with the XML file?

Scan the XML file for the information you need to verify it is there. Once you identify the data you can reference the tag.
