If you want to use MRL as a stand-alone tool management solution, you do not need to purchase separate Teamcenter licenses.

 

For the tool authoring you need to purchase the MRL product “TCM055010 - Manufacturing Resource Library”.

 

The NC-programmer requires the product “TCM055030 - MRL Connect For NX” to be able to retrieve tools from the tool library.

 

No additional Teamcenter licenses are required.

To get a parametric definition of the holder, see this thread

https://community.plm.automation.siemens.com/t5/Discussion-Forum-NX-Manufacturing/Sample-vb-program-...

 

Add a parametric tool to the holder, then save to the tool library

 

You can then add the tool geometry to the \geometry\ subfolder(*).

 

To see how to use text tool libraries start here and go thru the tool library stuff:

https://docs.plm.automation.siemens.com/tdoc/nx/12/nx_help/#uid:xid1128418:index_mfggeneral:xid38470...

 

Note if you have MRL, that is slightly different.

 

(*) If you are using Teamcenter, instead of adding the file(s) to the \geometry\ folder, just add an item in Teamcenter with the Item ID = the libref in the tool library text file
