Getting tools to Post Out to my programs??

Re: Getting tools to Post Out to my programs??

Jeff,

To get the tools to list properly, you need to set up the PPRINT parameters in your "Work Center". Click on it in the Model Tree, then right click and select "Edit Definition".

Click on the "Parameters" tab.

On the right side, click on the "PPRINT" button.

A sub menu will appear at bottom right, click on "Create" in there.

Another submenu will appear, click "Confirm" to continue.

Scroll down to "TOOL_COMMENTS" and select it, then click the "YES" button at the bottom left.

Once that's done, click the "OK" button and you're done.

Now, when you define a tool, be sure to click on the "Settings" in the tool definition, and put in what you want in the "Comments" field. That is the stuff that will be put in your tool list.

Jeff,

If you look in your working directory with windows explorer you will find there one or more files that have ncl extension. Something like this: op010.ncl.8. Open the latest file of this type with wordpad or notepad and look for the line that begin with LOADTL word.

The lines above should look like this:

PPRINT / TOOL NAME : T0004

PPRINT / CUTTER_DIAM : 0.393701

PPRINT / LENGTH : 3.937008

LOADTL / 4 $$-> 10 mm Dia; 3 mm Rad

If you don't see the PPRINT lines above the LOADTL then your problem is with the PPRINT settings. If the lines are there but you don't get the tool list on the tape file, then the issue is with the postprocessor
