You can create a default part which can include tool lists, geometry and settings that will be applied to any new part you create as follows.
V9 and later
- Create a part file which includes the tools and features you would like to be included in any new part
- Go to File-->Save as Default
- Select Type Default Part when you want the tools and other data loaded whenever the type of machine you have selected is used.
- Select MDD Default Part when you want the tools and other data loaded only when using the specific MDD you have selected.
To activate this function create a new part with the desired machine type, tools, stock, etc. and save it as a default part file.
The default file must be named:
- New Lathe Part.vnc
- New Mill Part.vnc
- New Mlll_Turn Part.vnc
These files must be saved in the GibbsCAM installation folder. All three default files may be used.
Any time you create a new file Gibbs will check for the existence of the default part file and will load the data from that file into the part.
