CadCam Integration?

I am sure you will be flooded with requests for this but, After looking over your cad cam integration It looks very promising to integrate with My software which is ProEngineer / ProManufacturing.
It uses XML for it's tool information same as HSMAdvisor I don't know what you need for checking but I have included a couple of pictures of the tooling pages as well as a sample of the XML from the tool.
I would be happy just to be able to export a single tool XML file from HSMAdvisor to Import into my ProManufacturing tooling library even if it did not use the tool setup pages to fill it in.

Thnaks for the upload.
I looked at the screenshots and i am not sure whether current integration tchnique would work.
Without having your Pro Engineer on my pc, i would need xml files for all your tool types like drills, endmls reamers etc. And thats a lot of work...

Can you send me your tool library, so i can see if it is feasible?

I looked at my tool Library and It's 360mb not sure you would get much use out of it. it's a combination of tool models(.prt) and xml files that holds all the cutting info for the tool. I am not very familiar with XML but I thought it looks similar to what you output and that is my reason for the request. I zipped up a sample of the xml file for a 1/2 inch 4 flute end mill and a 1/4 inch drill.
If you don't think it will work not a problem.

Thanks Steve,
I will look into this.
I will probably make it work the same way integration works- user will get to choose what filds to import.
It will only work for importing data into HSMArvisor though.
