In the information tab i called the name Test_2

 

If i load the tool from the library the name Test_2 has been replaced with Test_3

Is there a column missing in the "tool_database.dat" ?

The catalog number is always the same as the library reference, it is not a separate value.

Hi Stefan

Do you know why the catalog number is the same as the library reference?

For me it makes no sense at all... I would like to describe our tools better...( catalog number; manufacturer; price...

Is there any possibility?

The tool dialog in NX is not meant as a way to collect information for ordering a tool.

I would use the description field for such information, which is a separate value and can be of any length.
