Tool Holder... Possibility of enhancements?

Say you have a shrink extension in an ER collet holder

Every time you use a different length you need a custom tool

 

Im thinking we need another option here so we can keep the extensions modeled and the holder modeled and just use "insert" length like a tool in a holder without the extension.

Modular tools would be a great help!

Not only for solid tools but also with the regular tool library..

We use the seco graflex system, it would be nice if I could just put every module in the library and put them together when needed.

this certainly would be nice... and while they are at it, it would be nice to be able to import solid models as a tool holder....

In MRL, this is included for vendor catalog tool components. 

In ASCII, you can use the sample program to define the holder on an NX tool, and then export the holder to your library.
