There are 4 modules in this course

In Week 1, we’ll cover the use of multi-axis controls to position and machine geometry. Multi-axis positioning lets us use 4th and 5th axis control to locate the part and tool but utilize 2.5 and 3-axis cutting operations to actually remove material.

In Week 2, we’ll explore how to control tool motion in 5-axes at the same time using Fusion 360. Simultaneous 5-axis machining can seem like a daunting task, but the interface and controls in Fusion 360 make it manageable.

In Week 3, we’ll learn the basics of creating multiple setups in Fusion 360. This process is done when a part needs to be repositioned in a machine for additional operations. We’ll focus on using this in 3-axis applications with a single “flip” of the part in a vise to highlight how to create a new setup, coordinate system, and toolpaths to finish off a part.

In Week 4, we’ll combine all the knowledge we have learned into programming a single part using 2 different machines. We’ll start cutting some geometry on a CNC Mill with a 3-axis workflow. This is typically done to rough, semi-finish, or finish parts that don’t require multi-axis tooling or only require a small amount of it. This keeps the machine run time down of more expensive machines that might be performing other tasks. We follow this up by creating an additional setup to utilize multi-axis positioning as well as simultaneous 5-axis finishing operations.
