Autodesk Fusion 360 Machining Extension



Below are the main features the Machining Extension adds to your Fusion 360 software capabilities:

Automated 3-axis machining

The function simplifies the drilling and milling of complex, feature-rich models with a range of intelligent toolpaths that can safely and efficiently process an entire part for faster CAM programming.

Automated 3+2 machining

With automated 3+2 machining you get the access to additional strategies and tool axis controls that can use the rotary axes of your CNC machine to drill and mill entire parts.

4-axis & 5-axis simultaneous machining

Advanced multi-axis strategies and tool axis options allow you to drive the linear and rotary axes of your CNC machine simultaneously to improve surface finish, use fewer parts setups, and produce the most complex shapes safely and efficiently with automatic collision avoidance.

Toolpath modifications

You can take advantage of powerful modification tools to make global or local edits to toolpaths without wasting time on a complete recalculation. For greater flexibility you can edit modifications themselves.

Macro-based inspection

This function allows you to measure features in-process with the probing cycles on your machine. You can verify dimensions and positions of critical geometric features, update tool wear parameters, and pause or stop your programs to address out-of-tolerance features.

Surface inspection

With CAD-based probing capability you can measure and improve the accuracy of complex surface geometry with a spindle-mounted probe. Intelligent part alignment automates the setup and machining of non-prismatic parts, like forgings and castings, thus helping save time and increase product quality.
