Downloading a Tool Library

You can find a direct link to Harvey Tool and Helical tool libraries for ESPRIT by clicking the “Download” buttons in the webpage above, or by clicking the links below.

Harvey Tool – End Mills

Helical Solutions – End Mills

These links will trigger an automatic download of a ZIP file which contains the various ESPRIT library files (.ETL) for each brand. You can find these files by heading to your File Explorer and going to your Downloads folder. Each ZIP file will contain multiple ETL files, broken down by product group. For example, you will see different Harvey Tool end mill libraries for ball, square, corner radius, and all of the material specific products.

Once you have downloaded your tool library, you will need to import the tool libraries into ESPRIT by clicking on the “SolidMill” button on your top toolbar. From there, navigate to the bottom of the side panel to the second tab, labeled “Tools”. Once you are in the Tools tab, right click inside and select “Knowledge Base” and then “Cutting Tool Manager” from the menu.

Alternatively, you can access the same Cutting Tool Manager by opening up the separate ESPRIT KBM Manager program. This will bring you right to the Knowledge Base, where you can then select “Cutting Tools” to access the Cutting Tool Manager.

Once inside the Cutting Tool Manager, click the first button next to the “Tool Groups” drop down menu to create a new Tool Group. Name your new Tool Group and add a description, and click OK. Now you will see a blank window, where you will want to right click again and choose “File -> Open”, or hit CRTL+O. Now navigate to your PC’s Downloads folder, select the ETL file you would like to add to ESPRIT, and click “Open”.

This will import all of the tools in that ETL file into this new Tool Group. Please be patient as these new tool models load into your software for the first time – this process can take a couple of minutes depending on the size of the ETL file.

After that, you are all set! The tool libraries you have imported will now appear in the “Tool Groups” drop down menu. You can add these tools to a job, move them around to different lists, and enjoy the convenience of having access to thousands of Harvey Tool and Helical Solutions cutting tools with the click of a mouse.
