Dimple Dies

Just started playing with my BTSM and wondering if there was a way to put my dimple dies into a tools library the way I can for my materials and and bender dies?

There is no need for inputting those into a library. In plate you select hole from the menu and then dimple. You can change the inner and outer dia. and height of the flare.

I'm using dimples in a current build, and I can visually see the protrusion in the software but I'm not seeing the rolled edge on the top side of the dimple (created with the male portion of the die). Not a huge issue, just an observation.

Is this typical or am I missing something? 7x version of SE.

Each different manufacture makes their dies a little different giving a little different look and pitch to the material. We are using a representation of the dimple to provide a little of the look that it will provide. We opted to not got into all of the different values needed to create the "perfect" geometry because it would cause more confusion then help to the customer.

Super quick response - awesome!

I'll take some screenshots tonight so everyone can see what I'm talking about. It's not an issue by any means. I was just curious.
