Fusion 360: Assembly Joints and Limits on the Shapeoko 3

Post by cchan » Tue May 31, 2016 6:48 pm

Hi All,

Thought I'd share this video I put together on adding assembly joints and limits to a Shapeoko 3 Model. You can download the model here: http://a360.co/1U9yxof

I plan to do another video shortly on using Fusion 360 - CAM to add threaded inserts into the waste board, similar to what Winston Moy did here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcdAnUnX59s

Enjoy!

P.S. If you have any questions around Fusion 360 CAM, please don't hesitate to reach out.

Hi Curt,

I've been using Fusion 360 a lot, but in a lot of cases, I'm exporting DXFs and creating gcode in VCarve. I've been watching SolidProfessor tutorials for Fusion and I'm going to try to machine very simple parts next week using Fusion 360 CAM to get the hang of things.

It would be really helpful to post a few tutorials on generating gcode for Shapeoko 3 users in Fusion 360 as I don't think I've seen anything on YouTube or on blogs. Maybe one screen cast on pocketing and profile operations and others on 3-D or two-sided projects using Fusion and the Shapeoko?

Check out John Saunders on NYC-CNC for useful Fusion CAD and CAM tutorials and ideas. He uses bigger machines, but the principals are the same on the ShapeOko.
