This course introduces you to the foundational knowledge in computer-aided design, manufacture, and the practical use of CNC machines. In this course we begin with the basics in Autodesk® Fusion 360™ CAD by learning how to properly sketch and model 3D parts. Before we program any toolpaths, we’ll explore CNC machining basics to ensure we have the ground level foundational knowledge needed to effectively define toolpaths. Finally, we explore the basics of setting up a CAM program and defining toolpaths to cut simple geometry. This is the same basic process that gets repeated for the design and manufacture of any part and is a critical step in learning and understanding the process.

TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO CAD, CAM, AND PRACTICAL CNC MACHINING
Extremely helpful introduction into Fusion 360. When you are done with this course you'll be able to create a design, prep for manufacturing and initial setup of your CNC (or whatever your using).
Well, structured course. Super useful for someone who designs customized machines and wants to manufacture parts for the same. Learned a lot from the Manufacture workspace of Fusion 360.
The course is interactive and well managed in the system. It helped me easily learn higly demanding cad/cam best practices and fusion 360 capabilities.
A comprehensive introductory course that covers all the content efficiently and have completed the first course with imbedded knowledge.
Wonderful course. A must learn for individuals looking to enter the future of manufacturing and prototyping.
best plateform to learn about CNC machines working with the code generation with no cost investments.
the best course for cad and cam learn lots of thing in design and manufacturing related work.
