Question

How to Edit the Tool Table File in IronCAD?

I would like to customize the sheet metal stock in IronCAD.

IronCAD Select Stock Default Contents

Answer

The tooltbl.txt file specifies the parameters that define specific sheetmetal tools and types of sheetmetal stock.

The tooltbl.txt file contains also instructions on how to make modifications to the file.

Depending on your Operating System and IronCAD version, the file is located:

IronCAD 2012

Windows Vista / 7

C:\Users\CADMAN\AppData\Local\IronCAD\IRONCAD\14.0\en-us\SheetMetal

IronCAD SheetMetal tooltbl location on Windows 7 (IronCAD 2012)

IronCAD 2011

Windows XP

C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\
Application Data\IronCAD\IRONCAD\12.0\en-us\SheetMetal

Windows Vista / 7

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\IRONCAD\12.0\en-us\SheetMetal

It is recommended to make a copy of the file before making any modifications, as shown above.

There are several rules that have to be strictly followed. For more information, have a look at the following video (credit to MagnaSupport)
