    Hi Marek,
    Thanks so much for this excellent video, I learned very useful skills from your videos, can you please make videos on how to use NXV (NX to Vericut interface), and if possible how to use MRL in the most efficient way to create universal tool libraries, thanks again and I wish you all the best.
