Explore the method for selecting and working with tools.
- [Instructor] In this video,…we're going to be selecting tools for machining this block.…Now we have jumped ahead a little bit,…because we've already selected one tool…and done one operation with it.…In fact, in the previous couple videos,…we've actually even posted that out already.…But now we're going to rewind a little bit,…and actually select that tool…or the other tools for the job.…To do that there's a couple different ways.…The first way is to actually select the operation…and then just kind of add the tool on the fly.…So I'm going to choose maybe like a drilling operation,…right up here, choose drill,…and I'm going to choose from the library,…notice I don't have any other operations.…
Not right now, it's saying that I'm going to be using this…N mill for the drilling operation, which is not true,…so I need to select a different operation.…So come down here, I'm going to choose the inch aluminum,…and see if we can't find a spot drill.…So go through all the drills, the center drills,…and here's a spot drill,…
