Tool Matching is one of the key concepts behind Design Advisor. Toolpath Design Advisor comprehends the part geometry and determines which type and size of machining tools (endmills, facemills, ball mills, drills, etc.) are best suited for each feature on the part.
Design Advisor provides a standard library of hundreds of tools that represent most common standard and metric tool types.
From this library, a roughing and finishing tool is selected that is suited to complete the most restrictive area of each feature (i.e. the tightest radius or the longest reach).
If no suitable tool is available in the library, Design Advisor will make recommendations to modify the feature geometry to allow the feature to be machinable with the available tools.
Tool library customization is currently under development.
