These take in:
 Designing and programming complex tool geometries, including individual tooth geometries and tool parameter scaling
 Fast 3-D live simulation routines
 Automatic collision control.
After simply selecting tool size and geometry, then grinding wheel and electrode ‘package’, the system offers a simulation mode where parameters can be quickly and easily changed before tool production starts – on the Power Diamond, Diamond Evolution and Vision Diamond 400L machines.
The new enhancements in Tool Studio version 3 – which all contribute to faster tool production simulation, parameter changes and machine operation for the production of carbide as well as PCD tooling - also embrace new functionality for:
 Thread milling cutters - diameter/flank grinding and OD grinding
 Pocket extensions - import and grind DXF pocket shapes
 Cut-off operations - compensating for worn wheels
 Probing and alignment of asymmetrical flats - more functionality to define probing points/probe the exact position for perfect alignment
 Side probing - on the Helitronic Micro c axis at 90° for grinding lengths up to 200 mm, depending on application and wheel diameter
 In-process wheel and electrode measurement inside the machine
 Core compensation for long tools - core parameter and tolerance band
 Automatic machine axis referencing - using setting disc with electrical isolator
 Coolant hole detection with camera
 Integration of the new Top Loader handling
 Integration of the optional HF (50,000 rpm) spindle.
In addition, Tool Studio 3 has a grinding wheel data interface for the Heliset tool measuring machine, to measure wheel/wheelsets then send/import that data to Tool Studio.
