    Is it possible to import tool geometry into Haas controller?

    I'm running a 2008 Haas super mini mill ( Doesn't have the next gen controller )

    I don't have an automatic tool setter, so all of this is hand entered into the controller.

    I would like to be able to import that data into the controller.
    Is this possible?

    A best case scenario for me would be to manage my tool lengths in my CAM software and have this included in my post processor so that it gets loaded in with each job.
    I'm using Fusion 360 for my CAM software.

    Currently I keep all of my tool lengths on a spreadsheet and just print out a new sheet which is kept by the machine.

    As long as I can figure out how to electronically get the tool length data transferred from my jump drive to the tool length fields on the machine I can figure out the rest

    Thanks for any suggestions..
