Happy New Year to all.
I am looking for a way to change the dimensions on bearings and gears etc from the Toolbox. Any help is appreciated. Z

What are you trying to achieve from this. Let us know where you what to get to. A 6005 bearing is a 6005 bearing and the gears are customisable so what do you want to do?

Thanks for your reply, I as my post states I am trying to change dimensions of gear sizes as well as bearings. There are only a handful of bearing sizes in Toolbox (6 I believe) and they do not fit my needs for I.D. or O.D., the same applies for the very few gear sizes and types.

If we are usin the same toolbox then there are hundreds of bearings and gears. I use the skf tab the most although the range includes torrington imperial and metric as well as country standards. I also find the german DIN tab to have the biggest range of gears.
If I need a special which does happen then I copy the nearest gear or bearing out to a seperate file and change it dimensionally there and save it under my own part number. If you want the drag and drop facilities put the folder containing your new parts into the library so it comes up in the right hand design tree.
If you want to add customised files dirctly into toolbox you can do this too but it has to be done through access aand I have never seen the need to do this. One thing to be considered if you go this route is the toolbox file can get over-ridden when you do an upgrade and you data lost. For this reason I have kept all my toolbox upgrades well away from the actual toolbox file
