The main point of having a Tool Database is to streamline access to frequently-used tool sizes and custom cutting data, preserving your manufacturing knowledge for future use by you and perhaps sharing it with your co-workers.
Tools have to be added by clicking "Add Tool" button on the "Tool Data" panel of the "Speeds and Feeds" tab.
Once a tool has been loaded, you will not be able to edit it's Tool geometry or access the "Add Tool" functionality. Please click on "Edit New" or "Reset" button on the Tool Data panel to unload the current tool.
