    Default Fusion 360 lathe tools

    Am I a bit slow or does fusion have a very odd and time consuming way to add lathe tools to the library?

    I'm still not sure how to add this internal threading bar to the library properly.

    You're not wrong, I hated playing around with it and then finding I had something configured wrong-handed and that's why a toolpath wouldn't generate...

    So uh, I'm not sure it's possible to add this tool to the library properly or at least I'm having trouble figuring it out.

    I seem to remember just programming with something like a V style boring insert and just offsetting the tool offset in the controller based on the drawing from the insert manufacturer?
