Handling of tool carrier to update standard tools in old parts

Gears Esteemed Contributor Gears Esteemed Contributor

How do other users specify the tool carrier to have it automatically update the available tools and their pocket positions?

Using a simple template part with the standard tools applied for a machine will not update any existing part files created through this template part.

A more dynamic approach would be to use a device, which should update the tool carrier in older parts too.


I think that the functionality should allow the following:

  1. have a single source for the tool carrier
  2. allow moving the tools from one pocket to another
  3. allow removing or replacing tools
  4. update the tools in old parts when the parts are opened

Has anyone already gone through that and found a solution to overcome the static tool carrier problem?

Would it even possible to use a device for this kind of task?


Thanks in advance for any pointers Smiley Wink
