The buttons, from left to right, are described below;

  • Normal outlined - the tools are displayed as outlined shapes and the colour of the shapes depend on the colour of the tool defined in the tool database.
  • Black outlined - the tools are displayed as outlined shapes in black only.
  • Solid outlined: the tools are displayed as solid shapes and the colour of the shapes depends on the colour of the tool defined in the tool database.
  • Solid Black - the tools are displayed as solid shapes in black.
  • Material - the tools are displayed as solid shapes in white. However the colour of the sheet depends on the type of material selected (e.g. Stainless Steel or Aluminum).
