Importing Custom Milling Tools from a Level

To open the Levels Manager, ensure Levels is enabled under the View tab.

Select Levels from the bottom of the Manager panels or from the left-hand bar.

Create a new Level and name it ‘Custom Tool.’ Set this level to be the main level as the tool will be drawn at this level.

Draw the custom tool vertically with the tip of the tool on X0, Y0. Draw only half of the tool, as the profile will revolve to create a complete tool. The tool must be drawn as a continuous chain, meaning there can be no overlaps or duplicate entities.

Toolpaths > Tool Manager

Right click in the upper window of the Tool Manager and select Create new tool.
