Using Drop-down 8 "Online Selector"
This utility has an embedded web browser linked to a url with the OSAAP Wikitool database. This is a wiki-style database were users can add .tool files with titles, unique part numbers and key words separated by *. Once uploaded from any PC the .tool files can be dragged and dropped into the OSAAP Designer workspace to be included in your foam design from any other PC in the world.
Our intention is for the OSAAP user community to help us build this database into the largest tool database in the world. The staff at OSSAP will be adding Foam designs to fit in Pelican cases and other case suppliers, Snap-On Tools, Wera tools, Starrett, APEX tools and many more. We hope our customers will also add many more tools to the database.
OSAAP staff will be checking the .tool files users upload. For each upload, we will add the keyword *OS Approved after we have validated the .tool file is the correct size for the items it is intended for. While it will take time for us to validate all the uploaded .tool files, you can add your own key words to make the tools you load easy to find.
We can also load large volumes of .dxf files to the database quickly. Please contact OSAAP customer service if you would like to add your tools to the database using your CAD data.
If you have proprietary tools and need a secure tool database OSAAP can provide a customized version of our designer software with a secure/private database for your company's internal use.
