    CAMworks adding unwanted tools to crib

    Hi everyone,

    Just got my first CNC machine and I'm familiarizing myself with CAMworks. I haven't played with it for a few years now and I'm struggling with a few things. But first I need to solve this problem.

    When I generate a tool path, CW is adding tools to my crib that I don't have and I do not want. Is there a way to stop this from happening?

    Anybody? This is highly frustrating. I have to continuously redo my tool crib for every part.

    Set the tools you don't have to OFF in the techDB,Create a toolcrib with tool you have and check the checkbox "toolcrib priority" in your toolcrib tab
