Created a tool database-need to change tool type

I created a group of tools for a new tool database I am starting. These are End Mills which I did not set the tool type correctly for. It is looking to me like that is the one thing that is not editable after created. Am I missing something? Thanks for any help.

Hi,

Unfortunately it is not possible to change the tool type once it has been saved.

You would have to create new tools and delete the old ones.

I am going to try to solve this somehow, but every time i tried, results were not satisfactory.

Best regards.

Ok! Glad I noticed it now before I created too many tools, but not a major deal at this point. Just to try and do this correctly rather than starting right from scratch though. Is there a way for me to copy the tool and still be able to change the tool type?

Thanks,
Chad

You can load a tool and hit "Edit New".
This will allow you to change the tool type.

Keep in mind changing the tool type will reset most of the tool's geometry to default. So you will have to re-enter it.

Then you can save the new tool.

Ok thanks I will give that a try and see if it is what I was hoping for. Worst case I will just start over for the tools I did incorrectly.

Thanks,
Chad
