    hi

    Could anyone assist me in adding these cheap engraving bits into the tool library on fusion 360?

    1. The cost of them has no bearing on it.
    2. The tool library of what ?
    Spelling mistakes are not intentional, I only seem to see them some time after I've posted

    Have you tried Google? There's a whole bunch of stuff if you look for something like "Fusion 360 add tool to library". The Youtube videos by NYC CNC are well-regarded and he has one, I see. It's a pretty straightforward thing to do, once you have found out what the important parameters are as opposed to the ones you can ignore (bit like much of F360, in fact). Ignore things like "toolholder", for example. It's important for some things, but safe to ignore when you're getting started.

    Correct the cost is irrelevant but the diameter information on the link probably is.

    I put this post in the Fusion 360 section so assumed people would know its for doing this on fusion 360.

    Yeah ive had a look but i was surprised to see you cant add them in as a actual v bit. Ill have to add them as chamfer or somehting similiar.

    A V bit is just a type of chamfer cutter...

    ...and F360 appears to allow you to enter a 0mm tip diameter to make it a V-cutter.

    I did wonder about the question as the "tool entry" mechanism is pretty straightforward. All is now clear!

    If you want amore accurate representation, use a Tapered Mill, and set the tip diameter to 0.0000001.
