How to retrieve default tools when changing machine?

Gears Esteemed Contributor Gears Esteemed Contributor

When changing the machine similar tools could be on different pockets.

Currently one needs to move the tools to the new pockets manually through the edit machine tool dialog.


Is there an automatic way to assign the tools to the correct pockets?


In addition it would be good to have a tool magazine similar to the machine tool, which you could exchange and the default tools setup in the magazine would supersede the ones available in the part file.


Currently using static templates for each machine with the preloaded fixed tools is not dynamic enough to handle situations where tools are superseded by new ones on the same machine.


Any pointers, especially of what the future might bring, would be much appreciated.
