Tool Tablle Export / Import function
« on: March 22, 2015, 02:01:00 AM »
HIYA ROn would it be possible to create an tool table export /import feature for teh Wizard ??

It would need to export the current Jobs tools or the current tool table.  A CSV file would be great. We only need to export the Tool#, Diameter, Description, (tool Type # if you create that for us)

Also could we get a new category in the tool table as an INTEGER to define a BITMAP picture that will be showable in Mach3/4 when you access a tool in the control.

In Mach3/4 it would take that NUMBER and load a bitmap drawing of the TYPE of tool it is. Such as  

1 = BITMAP of a mill cutter , Flatnose
2= Bitmap of a Mill cutter , Roundnose
3 = Twist drill
4 = Straight drill
etc
etc

Then you could use the SAME bitmaps in the WIZARD to also show the tool type as a picture when you selected them. It could work both ways.

(;-) TP

Nice idea, I will talk to Brian about it.

We have some greast new operations now, but it has taken a couple more months than I expected. I think all that is left before release is to complete the help docs, which I hpe to do today or tomorrow. "real soon now"
