Turning tools library updates? Cant build the tool i need. Invalid tool angles

So, when is the fusion team going to allow us to import 3d turning tool files into our tool library to use for turning applications? or at least the ability to upload a DXF? or a 2d projection of the tools profile from the 3d model? Something! Anything! please?! I mean we all been here, right? It works but...

I'm just saying add a drop-down menu to use a file instead of 1 of the generic profiles( i realize it is not that easy but...please? fusion is so powerful up to this point.)

The problem I'm having is trying to "draw" a Sandvik tool #C4-SDUCL-13070-07X.

So, the "beloved" Lars from you tube (really like his videos!) Did a video of something real close to this tool. Mine looks nothing like it (it has a long tail behind the insert) the insert angle looks good but it's giving me the error.

We're working hard on the ability to bring in tool holders and eventually custom tools. There's nothing to share/show at this time, but there are development teams working on this very issue.

Would you be able to share your Fusion file here or privately?
File > Export > Save to local folder, return to thread and attach the .f3d file in your reply. To share the file privately, it's the same process, but email it to me: seth DOT madore AT autodesk DOT com

I appreciate EVERYTHING the fusion team does!!!! Don't get me wrong! I have begged this company for 5+ years to get me fusion. They finally did. And now they understand why I wanted it. They were instantly blown away! 

Unfortunately, I cannot email company data to the outside world. Best I can do is a screen shot of the tool... well what it looks like.

When dealing with tools such as this that are essentially "back cutting", the unfortunate answer is that you pretty much have the only option of defining it with no tool holder.
