tool inspection/change


I want a rough operation program in Fusion 360. The mold part is too large. The cutting tool will wear out. I want to check the tips of the cutting tool. For example, after going down the Z axis by 10mm, the cutting tool goes up, puts M01, or works for 20 minutes, then G91 G28 goes to Z0 position, then I change the tips of the cutting tool, and the program continues where it left off. Mastercam has this feature. Nx has this feature. How can I do it in Fusion 360?

I put a link on how to do it in Nx, you can check it out.

Currently, the only option that's readily handy is to have multiple toolpaths with the same tool, covering the same area, but at different Z depths:

Z0 to Z-10.

Z-10. to Z-20.

Z-20. to Z-30.




We recognize this isn't ideal and have heard as much from our users. I'm not intimately aware of any current project that's meant to address this bottleneck, but I do know the developers are always keen on improving the product.

Thank you for your reply. I have worked in different software companies before. Fusion 360 is a great program. It also has its shortcomings. I would like to help with ideas on what can be done to improve the program and what features can be improved.
