tool selection from the library - automatic cycle selection

Hello, is there an option to set it to automatically select a thread cycle when selecting a tap from the Fusion library? Thanks

 

Edit:

so the solution is probably to modify the expression in the cycle selection, which is like this in the system settings, and I had that expression changed.

tool_isMill ? ('drilling') : ((tool_type == 'tap right hand' || tool_type == 'tap left hand') ? 'tapping' : ((tool_type == 'reamer')?('reaming'):'drilling '))

 

It selects taps well, but other tools not according to my requirements, so it needs to be adjusted...Hopefully it will work somehow. Does anyone have any experience with this, how to modify it?

Thanks

sorry, I didn't know from your answer if the cycle selection can be changed, or if you have experience with it.

The software is not designed to automatically switch cycles depending on what sort of tool is selected.

however, I made a small tweak and the milling tool selection will automatically select 'bore-milling'. And as a default cycle for drilling 'deep-drilling', which is a change against the system setting

Code:

tool_isMill ? ('bore-milling') : ((tool_type == 'tap right hand' || tool_type == 'tap left hand') ? 'tapping' : ((tool_type == 'reamer')?('reaming'):'deep-drilling'))

 

Edit: 

I think it's possible to change everything as needed - example:

tool_isMill ? ('bore-milling') : ((tool_type == 'tap right hand' || tool_type == 'tap left hand') ? 'tapping' : ((tool_type == 'reamer')?('reaming') : (tool_type == 'boring bar')?('boring'):'deep-drilling'))

How are you making this change?

It's the (default) expression for the Cycle type Menu in drilling

((tool_type == 'tap right hand' || tool_type == 'tap left hand') ? 'tapping' : ((tool_type == 'reamer')?('reaming') : (tool_type == 'boring bar')?('boring'): (tool_type == 'flat end mill')?('circular-pocket-milling'): (tool_type == 'bull nose end mill')?('bore-milling'):'deep-drilling'))

 

This code automatically selects the next cycles - flat end mill selects the circular-pocket-milling cycle for finish milling the holes, and the bull nose end mill (I have radiused blade tools defined here) selects the bore-milling cycle. Of course, reamers and a boring bar. The default drilling cycle is deep-drilling .

 It is difficult for me to understand that Autodesk is not able to automate the selection of cycles according to the tool in the basic settings.
