Holders from the list of project tools (the first item in the list of libraries) are read-only because they are generated automatically according to the tools of the current project and there is no separate list of project holders.
Holders from conventional libraries can be edited.
The Name field specifies the display name of the holder, an arbitrary text string.
The CAD model file name parameter allows you to specify files in *.stl and *.osd formats. Sets the 3D model of the holder for visualization and control of collisions during simulation. The button opens a standard file selection window.
Connection point - distance from the highest point of the holder to the connection point of the holder with the machine spindle.
The size of the holder can be set either in the text field or in the table of steps. Both views are automatically synchronized with each other during the editing process.
Dimensions in the text field - a sequence of pairs of numbers, separated by a semicolon, defining the diameter and length for each of the steps.
You can use thebuttons to add and remove steps.
