View spinning tool in the tool manager

Hi folks,

Because we have several multi-insert rotating tools, we would like CGTech to use within the tool manager the algorithm used to revolve tools in the machine simulation / workpiece view.

This is particularly helpful to people using Coro-U drills, multiple insert roughers, etc... (Like us)

Here we use toolman.bat to allow people to deal with VERICUT tool libraries without the need of a verification license... because of this, those people don't know if their tools are wrong until the NC-programmer complain about a tool that was wrongly defined... we want to allow the tool library guys (Our libraries are not maintained by the NC-Programmers) to see the result without going to a full verification license.

Since CGTEch already have the technology and code to do that within VERICUT verification, I think it's not a big deal for them to add this to the tool manager...  :wink:

What do you think?

Re: View spinning tool in the tool manager

I think it can also help users to validate tool assemblies containing components that has the checkbox "Do Not Spin with Spindle" checked. Sometimes people forget to set that and you only see it during the simulation...

Re: View spinning tool in the tool manager

I have to agree, it would be nice for the tool application engineer to be able to simulate the tool spinning so as to be able to tell if he selected the correct axis to rotate around.  This could also be added to the "View" menu.
