Learn how to build custom tools.
- [Instructor] We now know how to add tools to our tool…library but what if we want to create a custom tool.…It's pretty straight forward and easy and generally…I start most of my tools as a custom tool and…define exactly what I'm actually going to be using,…versus selecting through a library…and just having the modifier edit the tool…to get exactly what I need.…So, let me show you how to do that.…First things first, go up here to Tool Library,…click on that.…And let's go ahead and click on New Tool, click on that.…And I can just right from the beginning start defining…the type of tool.…So, over here under General, I want to define a drill.…
