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
in this course, I learned how to sketch and got the knowledge of tools fixtures, clamping in CNC machine as well as 2 Axis Machining and 2.5 Axis Machining.
I am glad to learn such an amazing experience through these platform ,also helpful in taking my skills upwards.
Muy buen curso que explica como funciona la máquina CNC, ejemplos prácticos. Lo que más me gustó es que hay una lección en donde te explican todo lo relacionado para tu maquina CNC
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.
