    Default Adding form tools to data base

    Hey guys, I'm wanting to add a form tool to my data base. it is a Jesada 648-590 I believe they call it a plunge ogee bit...but not really an ogee as it has a 90* fillet between the radii, and the nose is a half round


    Anyhow, how do I add this bit to the database? Thanks in advance for the help.

    You need to draw the bit profile in the Aspire/VCarve window with exact measurements of all the turns and angles of the RIGHT side of the bit ONLY using an OPEN vector. Then highlight that vector and select tool database and New. Select a form tool and your selection will be displayed. If it's correct then you can specify other tool parameters, name the tool and add it. This is all spelled out in the help files.
