Now that we have a basic understanding of what the Tool Change is all about, we will be looking at its settings.

In order for us to run through all the different setting for the tool change option, we will first need a basic work environment.

This video is part of a Mini-Series.

Video Transcript

Hi guys. In today's video, we're gonna be quickly setting up a basic scene that we can use to demonstrate to change. But before we get to that, let's have a quick intro first. So today's video can be found on And we make short and easy to watch problem solving videos. And we also have the updates. Otherwise, we're heading into the programme here. So, like I mentioned in the intro, we're gonna be quickly setting up a basic scene just to have something to work with when we do our tool change. So what I'm gonna do, I'm gonna add say, uh, a circle, another circle around that just align that a bit better. And then, um and then let's maybe make a square just so we can see the difference. Now, obviously, this is gonna vary depending on your layout, you might have holes. You wanna drill and stuff like that. Well, I'm just gonna keep this simple. So let's just, uh, move this more to the centre and then and then just change some colours just for now so we can identify at least a difference. So I'm gonna right click that one. This one I'm gonna make Maybe Blue and the last one. Let's make it green. So what's currently gonna happen? I'm gonna use this, Uh uh, first one to make a bit of a drill in. So like, uh Oh, sorry. I mean, the first one I want to use to make an actual, uh, mill. So we're gonna mill out this pocket, then the next one, we're gonna do a contour milling around, and then, uh, the last one will do the contour cutting, so right around the edge. So this is the example now. It might vary depending on the tools to using. Oh, sorry. I mean, the square we can use for the contour cutting. I'm jumping all over the place. I'm sorry, but, uh, yeah, So what we're gonna do is just, for example, like I said, this is gonna vary depending on your actual setup. So what I'll do is I'm gonna start with the beginning, click the red one, and then we go quickly to conto a milling. And then, uh, we wanna select the tool. Now, you might have different tools set up, and obviously you can just click that little, um, screw looking icon or over there. And then you can choose which ones you want to set up. Now, the order of them are quite important. And, um, also the size and all of that. But, uh, I'm just gonna use as a demo what you would normally do for perhaps the milling out or choose a larger one. But I'm gonna start with one. And then, um, wait, let's make this on three. I'll work it in reverse. So we've got this one at three. You can obviously add here if you want to add a new type of, um, setup, but I'm gonna say, uh, just, uh, number three say save. Oh, we didn't change, so I didn't need to say save. And then a year it's gonna be pocket one. But I'm gonna call this because working in reverse. So this will be number three. So let's go, um, pocket three. So this is gonna be our inner. I'm gonna leave all those diameter the same as it. We're not actually doing a video about how these settings work. We've already covered those. What we just want to do is look at to to order. I'm not sure what happened there, OK? And then we're gonna click on the next one and do a little bit of a contour milling. Now I'm gonna select tool number two because we had tool number three for the inside the biggest or second biggest one. Then we're gonna now do that one, and then the last one over here I'm gonna choose the actual contour cutting and then select two number ones, so it's gonna be our skinniest one. This is gonna cut right through, and we're gonna have a bit of a bevel in. Oh, sorry, skinniest one. I keep forgetting it's the outside. We're gonna cut that right out. It's gonna be our overall shape. Then we're gonna have a little bit of a mould, and then with our thickest one, we're gonna mould. I mean a contour, and then the thickest one, we're gonna mould out this inside, so OK, so now on the right here, I'm just gonna make sure we are. All our naming is relevant. So this one at the moment still says, uh, pocket two. So I'm just gonna a three, which was right. So we must not change this bottom one to, um make sure it is this one. Yeah, So we're gonna change this one to contour one. Because like I said, we are working in reverse here, so our tool order is pretty much 123. Normally, it will be working from the top down, so it will be 123 if you set it up correctly. But this order here might be completely different, and that's what we're gonna be covering later. How do you make sure your tools are in the right order versus your actual programme? Because that is gonna be quite important. But yeah, before that, uh, this was just the basic setup of the scene. So if we just head here to You guys will know we've got a variety of different Softwares we do cover, and you can also isolate your searching on the top or right. If you do not however, find the training videos you're looking for, just simply go. Yeah, request the training video, fill in the mini form, and then we'll do our best to try and make that for you. But otherwise thanks, guys, for watching and cheers
