Hello! I don’t know how to creat a tool set in NativeCam. I see the default ones like 0-None 1- 1/16 inch and so on. I would like to create a personal tool set for example a ball nose tool or a v-shape or various diameter mill cutter in mm.
I don’t know how. please help.
thank you

Thank you very much! Another thing: is it possible to create a pyramid in NativeCam? so is it possible to cut along z axis setting an angle, not just perpendicular. how can I do it? thanks for all

Ok so maybe I can try to import a gcode of a pyramid for example and adjust it using nativecam (maybe scale it or setting on top of a nativecam drawing?!) Anyway thank you for the quick response and for the amazing work! I am a big fan of you!

You can use 'Miscellaneous->Insert a G Code File' after a 'toolchange' and include all code needed for what you want. You can pass up to 6 parameter values with current version.

...and adjust it using nativecam (maybe scale it or setting on top of a nativecam drawing?!)

ncam can not scale your code but I recommend you start at X0, Y0 and wrap in a "Group Offset" to move/rotate it around

ex : the order would be 'material', 'tool change', 'group offset' then in 'group offset.items ' add 'Insert a G Code File' then select the file you just wrote.

P.S. Do not create your file as a 'sub'-'endsub', just the code needed
