Then in Carbide Motion, you can select which bit you are probing.

I am almost afraid to say this, but I do not see what your post shows. When in Carbide Create, I go to tool path, i double click on a given tool path, up comes "edit tool path" under which there is an "edit" tab. When I click on that tab what comes up is "change tool" and when I select this what opens is a tool library. At this point there are several types of tools each with its own drop down box listing tools. The only option after that is to select a tool. There is no option to create or add a new tool.

Either I do not have the latest version of Carbide Create (464 created 2020--3-26) of I am in the wrong place. Any suggestions?

I have taken 3 screen shots. The shot numbers are in the order in which I would select them leading from the first to last tab opening.

Gotcha, Yup you have the updated version. Depending on the endmill it may already be in the software. I would look under the Softwood section and see if it is listed there. I just got home from work so I'm looking at the software now.

Softwoods -----> End Mills ------>Maybe a #102 ?

That video is from a lil bit older version, but was easier to access since I was at work.

By gum, you are right! Now I just need to go into Carbide motion and look there. You have been so generous with your time. I can't tell you how thankful I am for your help. Blessings to you!
