METACAM Punch tool collection

Creating and managing punch tool collections

A punch tool collection is a subset of tools from the entire tool library, and you can designate a particular tool collection be used for tooling up a part.

The Tools/Configuration/Punch Tool Collections brings up the Punch Tool Collections list (See the figure below) where you can create, rename, delete or edit the tool collections.

You can add tools from the tool inventory to the collection, by selecting the tool list on the right, and then clicking on the Add button (or pressing Alt + A).

You can also drag a tool over to add it. Similarly, you can remove tools from the tool collection by selecting the tool in the list on the left, and clicking on the Remove button (or pressing Alt + R).
