Hi robot experts, I have a question about the tool/base management menu not showing up, I'm logged in as an Administrator trying to assess settings for tools and bases on a robot where I wasn't involved in setting them up, The "tool/base management" heading doesn't appear on my kuka panel. I'm trying to check the settings for current tool/bases, I can't find anywhere how to get this menu to appear!!
Would be great to hear advice how to get that menu to become visible???
Thank you!

You are probably running KSS 8.3 or 8.2, they changed the UI slightly for KSS 8.5 onwards.
I'd recommend searching for "kuka system software pdf" or going via KUKA Xpert to get the right manuals for your robot/controller. There is a whole section on tool and base calibration that also guides you through the UI. In your particular case the options are behind the "Calibrate" button.
