    Tormach TTS toolholder library for Fusion 360

    I'm not sure if anyone else has done this but my searches have turned up empty. Many of you may have noticed that along with the new tool library in Fusion 360, all the previously built in tormach tool holders are gone. Not to mention the list was somewhat incomplete anyway. I wasn't overly concerned about it until recently due to an embarrassing number of crashes that could have all been prevented if I had tool holders selected when simulating my tool paths. I finally decided to eat the time and make a new library for myself. I have attached said library here in case anyone else has need of it. Included are the 1/4 and 3/8 set screw, er20 and 32 collet, slitting saw arbor, 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2" keyed chucks with JT taper bases, tension/compression head with generic quick change chuck installed, and a super generic tts base that can be used for things like a superfly or shearhog. These are a bit simplified but should all be accurate to within a couple thou anywhere it matters.

    You need to import the library back into fusion 360.

    Directions here.

    Re: Tormach TTS toolholder library for Fusion 360

    If you're referring to the sample tormach libraries listed for 1100 and 440/770 starter, those do seem to contain the tool holders that used to be available directly in fusion (knowing that would have saved me some time) but only the 1/2 and 3/8 set screw, jt1 drill, and er20 collet holders. I've added the two larger drill chucks, the er32 collet, the 1/4" set screw, the tension/compression quick change tapping head, a somewhat generic 1" slitting saw arbor, and a general purpose TTS base for use in creating any additional custom tooling.

    I see what you mean. Its a bit sparse. I did not really use the original Tormach tool library so I was not sure how much was in it. I do use the TTS but not on a Tormach. Someone out there must have a more complete library to download.
