  • How to deal with TwinTools in the new Tool Table

    Hi dears!

    He're Tommaso from SolidEngineering, an Italian SolidWorks reseller that co-operates with SolidCAM Italy.

    A customer has a multitasking machine (Doosan SMX, very imprevvise machine) and have to deal with those kind of tools, called TwinTools, that have two cutters, mainly one for roughing and one for finishing.

    Here's an example :

    How would you deal with that in the new tool table?
    Then, the orientation of the tool is operated by some parameters called at the tool change, that the post processor can handle, but my question is about defining it with the Toolkit.

    Thank you so much!

    Hi Tommaso,

    I have received already many times requests for a similar tool holder.
    There will be a webinar about how to import Holders, cutters, inserts for various components and the plan is to include this one as well.
    The webinar will be held on the 15th of April.

    Please stay tuned.
