In the older version of Carbide Create the Tool Library was all in one file. In the newer version they are broken up by Category, Hardwood, Softwood, MDF, etc. If i want to use cutter #112 for example it is listed in several categories. Since i will set the feed speed and plunge rate anyway when i use the tool does it really matter which category i select the #112 tool from.
Can i copy one of the categories to a custom category and then just use that one for everything making any corrections i need to the cutters.
yes; I made my own library of “favorite bits” with the F&S I tend to like for those bits.
CC will save them as a CSV file in its data directory, which you can easily sync between machines; it’s just an ascii file that copies well.
(and if you’re curious it also opens in microsoft excel or google sheets)
