ROC-300: Fusion 360 Project Class with Shopbot
This is the First Heading
This class focuses on using Fusion 360 to build tool paths for shopbots. We will start with a DXF file of a bird house and use it to generate a toolpath for the shopbot. Then we will cut it from 1/4" plywood and assemble.
We will cover Fusion 360 CAM operations including: Creating a personalized tool library, Speeds and Feeds, automated Dog Bones, Contour cuts, Pocket cuts, tabs, Simulations, and Post Processing to most any CNC machine.
This class is also intended as a good review on how to run the Shopbot Desktop in Rocklin. Make sure to have Fusion 360 loaded on your PC prior to the class.
Pre-requisite: You must have completed either the Midtown or Rocklin “Shopbot 100” intro class, or the earlier Shopbot 101 & 102 Intro classes.
