As our machining geometry gets more complicated, Autodesk® Fusion 360™ is up to the task! With a host of standard and adaptive toolpaths we can rapidly remove material from even the most complicated 3d parts. In this course, we explore how to rough and finish geometry that requires tool motion in X, Y, and Z simultaneously, learning how to finish even the finest of details. We’ll wrap up this course by creating a full CNC program for a part, simulating it, and exporting it to G-code.

After this course, you'll be able to:

  • Describe the benefits of adaptive toolpaths in Fusion 360.
  • Summarize rest machining applications.
  • Demonstrate knowledge and skills in the creation of detailed 3 axis toolpaths.
