THIS IS AN INTRODUCTION TO USING FUSION 360 FOR THE SHOPBOT.

We highly recommend taking Fusion 360 101 w/Michael or having previous knowledge of Fusion 360 before enrolling in this class.

Introduction to Fusion 360 for ShopBot is a first look at the CAM (Computer Aided Machining) capabilities of Fusion 360 and how it can be used with our CNC mill the 5x8 ShopBot. Free to use for hobbyists, Fusion 360 is a powerful for digital production across a number of platforms including CNC milling, laser cutting and etching, and 3-D printing.

This class will run over two consecutive days and cover the basics of 2D and 2.5D cnc milling strategies including, file preparation, feeds and speeds, work-holding and general safety and operation of the ShopBot machine. By the end of class students will have a solid understanding of the CAM capabilities of Fusion 360 and be capable of operating the Shopbot unsupervised.
