    Default Tool setup on lathes with Celos and Mapps

    Despite talking to 3 different people at DMG they have not been able to explain how to set up the tools so that you get the correct nose radius on turning tools.
    I have tried 3 different approaches:

    1. Make tool model, then make tool group, then connect the model to the group. The nose radius that I set in the model resets to 0,001mm which the control says is the radius in the tool group. I can find no way to set the nose radius in the group.

    2. Make tool group and the make the tool model from within the group. Same as above.

    3. Make a tool in "all tools". No way to set nose radius from there.

    For now I just use models and have no turning tools set in turret in the control. Tools with no radius, like U-drills work fine.

    How do you do this ?
