    Hey folks,
    I recently purchased two sharkbits end mills which don't appear to be in the tool library (Vectric).
    SB-10518-DC Carbide 1/4"-1/8" UpCut 2 Flutes Diamond Carbon
    SB-11014-DC Carbide 1/4"-1/4" UpCut 2 Flutes Diamond Carbon
    I tried redownloading and importing the tool library, and they still don't show up. I suppose I could build the mills from scratch in the tool database, but I thought I'd check here first to see if I was doing something wrong, or if they're just not in the library.
    Thanks!

    You're not doing anything wrong. The diamond carbon bits are newer. upcut/downcut doesnt matter when it comes to toolpaths so use the 1/4" and 1/8" 2 flute downcuts in the library.
