Hi. New to this software but it's absolutely brilliant. I find myself using it all the time and I've only had the trial for 3 days!

I was wondering if there was a way to output the tool list that comes up at the left of the screen. This would be very handy for me writing tool sheets for the setters after outputting NC code from feature cam. At the moment I have to manually scroll through the entire program and input each tool into MS Excel individually and our programs can have hundreds of tools...zzz.

I can highlight the tool list but I can't click "copy". Anyone know how to do this?

Thanks in advance!

Alex.

Hi Alex,

You can get a tool list from the run-time estimation window. Go to "Tools", click "Run Time Estimation" then click "Generate Report". This opens a document in Notepad with a list of the tools used in your program along with the estimated run time for each. You can simply print this document or you can copy the relevant information into another.

Thanks,
Scott
