Fusion 360 Tool Library

The Othermill Tool Library makes it easy to get started with CAM in Fusion 360. After downloading and importing the file, your Fusion 360 Tool Library will include definitions for all of the Othermill milling tools we sell in our online store. You can then use these tool definitions immediately in the toolpaths you create for your project.

Note: This tool library is also compatible with Autodesk HSMXpress, HSMWorks, and Inventor HSM.

For more information on how to use Fusion 360 with the Othermill, take a look at our Fusion 360 guide.

Download the tool library here: Othermill Tool Library 0.3

This .zip archive contains two files: a .json file used in Fusion 360, and a .hsmlib file used for Inventor HSM and HSMWorks/HSMXpress.

The tool library contains definitions for the following tools:

  • 1/8" Flat End Mill
  • 1/16" Flat End Mill
  • 1/32" Flat End Mill
  • 1/64" Flat End Mill
  • 1/100" Flat End Mill
  • 1/8" Ball End Mill
  • 1/16" Ball End Mill
  • 1/32" Ball End Mill
  • 1/64" Ball End Mill
  • 80° Engraving Bit
  • Othermill Collet Nut

How to Install the Othermill Tool Library into Fusion 360

  1. Download the tool library and unzip it. It will contain two files: “Othermill Tool Library.json” for Fusion 360 users, and “Othermill Tool Library.hsmlib” for HSM users. (The filenames may change depending on the version of the tool library you’ve downloaded.)

  2. In Fusion 360, switch to the CAM workspace. Then open the Tool Library from the Manage menu in the toolbar.

  3. In the CAM Tool Library dialog, click the “Local” library, then click the “Import Tool Library” button in the toolbar. It is the second button in the toolbar, with an arrow pointed downward into a box.

  4. Find the .json file you just downloaded and click Open. The tools should now appear in your library.

To reduce clutter, we recommend unchecking all the boxes except for the Othermill Tool Library. This will cause Fusion 360 to show only Othermill tools when you go to select a tool.
