Fusion 360: Introduction to CAD/CAM
Introduction to CAD CAM walks you through practical on-the- job skills needed for precision machining while preparing you to complete the NIMS Level 1 CAM Standard credential. Through a series of lesson, you will learn skills needed to read and understand detailed drawings, replicate 3D models, plan and create CNC toolpaths and export G-code for final machining. Take the first step in advancing your knowledge of CAD and CAM using Autodesk Fusion 360.
After completing this course series, you will be able to:
- Understand design intent from detailed drawings.
- Create a process plan for machining parts.
- Create 3D CAD files from 2D drawings.
- Create CNC toolpaths.
- Export supporting documentation and G-code.
