Dormer Pramet Tool LibraryMac OS, English
General Usage Instructions
Launching the add-in:
The add-in is located under the MANUFACTURE workspace inside the Manage panel which can be found on the MILLING, TURNING and UTILITIES tabs of Fusion 360. The first time you launch the app, it will connect to the Dormer Pramet tool library to download and index the tools and holders from the tool library. After the initial download, the app will check the version of the tool library hosted by Dormer Pramet on startup, but will only download and update if a newer version of the tool library is available.
Searching for tools:
On the right side of the add-in, there are filters to help you find the tools and holders you are looking for. To begin using the filters, select an object type. Once an object type is selected, the filters for that object type will be displayed. To set a filter, click the expand icon to open the filter and then use the controls in that section to set the condition for the filter. To clear/reset the filters, click the Clear Filter button located to the left of the filters.
To search for a tool or holder by name, enter text in the Search objects... input field.
The name, corner radius, diameter, flute length and overall length header in the table can be clicked to list the tools in ascending order of the clicked header.
If a tool or holder name in the list is truncated, hover the mouse over the name column for that tool or holder and a tooltip will pop up displaying the full name.
Searching tool libraries:
Your local tool libraries are located on the left side of the add-in. You can search for a local tool library by entering text in the text input box above the list of tool libraries. Any local tool libraries containing the search text will be displayed. To show all local tool libraries after a search, delete the text in the search field.
Adding a tool to a local tool library:
Add a tool or holder to a library by using the copy and paste icons located above the list of tools/holders. To copy a tool or holder, select the item in the list, then click the copy icon. Next, select the tool library to add the copied object and click the paste icon. If the tool already exists in the library, a prompt will appear asking you if you would like to add another copy of the tool to the selected library.
Closing the add-in:
To close the add-in, click the Close button at the bottom right of the add-in.
