To Save Tool Parameters
1. Select the tool you want to save by highlighting the appropriate Tool Table entry.
2. On the Tool Setup dialog box menu bar, click File > Save tool.
The system saves the tool parameters in a text file called <name>.tpm, where <name> is the tool Name, in the directory defined by the pro_mf_tprm_dir configuration option. If you have supplied the cutting data, that is, the speeds and feeds for the tool, this data is stored in a <name>.tpm file in the appropriate Materials subdirectory.
