    Tool library

    I have recently started working with a new Haas Mini Mill. We are attempting to figure out tool libraries, but are running into issues, and i have a couple questions. Is there anyplace to find all the Haas tools for Inventor HSM? Where do i find haas tool holder dimensions? And finally can i use the bits in HSM from other brands?

    I use Fusion 360 and it has HSM tool libraries there. There are Cat 40 tool holder profiles etc there as well.
    My tools are pretty common sizes, so I just filled out the tools by hand, but you can select from several lists and modify to suit as well.

    I saw the cat40 but I only have the middle not the full spindle, and as of right now I don't know if I need the rest or not. And I did edit the tools, and I believe I have that part correct

    I think you can edit the tool holders too, but not certain. I have not needed to do that. I don't have any complicated parts, but that is where you would need exact sizing on the tool holders to help with crash detection. The more information you can input there, the better your detection willl be.
