Trouble with editing threaded endmill

HI, I'm trying to edit an threaded endmill for creating a tooling path. However, when I edit this bit on Fusion 360 the flutes don't show on the bit animation and when I try to proceed I'm given a ' invalid milling tool message'. I'll attach an image below showing what I mean. Any help is greatly appreciated.

You cannot use a threadmill for anything other than threading a cylinder/boss.

If you have a custom tool that's going to impart a grooved surface, you want to create a Form Mill.

That said, those are only suited really for 2D Contour and Trace.

 

Could you share a link to the tool you're using? Is it possible that it's just an old "corn-cob" (or knuckle) roughing endmill?

Hi Seth, the bit I'm trying to use is a roughing bit. Here's the link Solid Carbide 3 Flute Hogging Router Bit | Rennie Tool Company

Thanks, Thomas

Yep, just define it as a Flat Endmill (unless of course the tool has a corner radius, in which case, just define it as a Bull Endmill)

Thanks I'll give that a go.
