Using Vcarve Pro V9.0 for Shopbot, Windows 7 pro sp1, Latest Gadgets SDK V2.04
Why is the only method on the ToolDatabase Object a dialog?
Where are the methods to enumerate the tools in the DB, modify groups ?
First I want to make a list (ascii) of tools that I keep track of for myself. I pin it on the wall so I can reference it when I create tool paths.
I was creating a gadget to do it for me, only to find there is no method to enumerate the tools.
Many tools, are the same bit but different speeds and feeds for specific materials and finishes.
I want to manage the tool numbers and names myself.
I want the tool info in the job file, so I can verify I have the parts correctly setup in the collets without have to be in front of the machine and
do that for each tool path in the job I am about to run.
When I "hand" edit the tool DB it is not easy to manage from a GIT perspective. i am a software guy and version control is important to me.
After going through the process of creating a form tool for a round-over bit, I want to automate it via a gadget and it looks like I can't create a form tool from the SDK tool object constructor. Is that true?
Please expose methods that help with this in the SDK.
