Best way to uninstall redundant tooling libraries

Post by michelle » Mon Sep 04, 2017 12:52 pm

Hello,

I installed the below options for TopSolid as shown in the first picture below. I do not use DME Inch, Futaba, Hasco, Meusburger etc tooling.

Could someone please tell me how do I go and unistal these? Should I re-run the setup.exe file or should I just add/remove programs as shown in the second picture below?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Michelle

Try to launch the installation program (choose) REPAIR) and uncheck the options you want to discard.

Following this, you may check the obsolete programs, libraries in the windows uninstaller

See you

Hi Remi,

Thank-you for your quick reply. I am busy following your instructions however just before I go and uninstall TopSolid'Tooling I would like to check my understanding if you would not mind:

Q1) Are all the yellow highlighted Libraries below 3rd party Tooling libraries, so if I don't use these tools, I don't need to install them?

Q2) What is TopSolid'Strip Design and when would you use it?

Q3) What is TopSolid Progressive Tooling and when would you use it?

Q2) What is TopSolid'Split?
Answer: This chapter introduces you to the “TopSolid’Split” module. This module allows you to create core and cavity block splits, and also sub-inserts without any consideration to the final use of these blocks (See TopSolid Design Guide page 282).

No you needn't
What is TopSolid'Strip Design and when would you use it?
Strip design is related to progressive tooling.
What is TopSolid Progressive Tooling and when would you use it?
It's designed for stamping tools

See you
