Network tools and settings

I think I understand, but what about the Forms folder. Isn't it one of the files with the tool information? I have attached a snagit picture of my registry. Is this what I change to the right location. Could you explain in a little more detail so I don't make any mistakes?


Thanks

Sharing Tool list via local network

Can anyone help me figure out how to share tool lists, such as 1/2 down sheer, 3/8 compression bits, etc. through our local network. We have 4-5 computers all running TopSolid wood cam. We would like one general location for our tool information and everyone reference this location. The reason we wo...

Our CNC router has a vacuum table. We have to have a large surface area touching the table to hold the suction of the parts. That is why we us mdf to hold are parts while we rout them. Does this make sense?

That is what started all my problems. From installation, post processor, and drill retraction. I now have this problem res...

I am using our own drilling process.

It is one that Jeff Norris setup for us, he said it works fine on his machine.
My computer was recently upgraded to 64-bit, with new installation on everything. I am running 32-bit TopSolid woodcam on a 64-bit windows xp.
I had to bring in all of our settings back into TopSolid.

Drilling retract problems. NCcode doesnt generate retract.

:( I am trying to generate nc code that drills holes. The problem that I am having, is the code my post processor generates, does not retract on the Z plane before traveling to the next location. Our test run broke a 5mm w/rpm 5000.

I look at the code and there is no retraction on the z plane between holes. Can anyone help me fix this problem . I've tried to change the clearance ...
