Just curious...

by Derranged Gadgeteer

You say you're having a lot of trouble getting toolpaths from fusion 360,and I can't help wondering, are you modeling the part in 3d in fusion, then trying to get it to export toolpaths? Or are you just starting with a 2d profile?

It strikes me that if you're starting with a 3d model, fusion might be putting in extraneous instructions, maybe even a whole other axis, when all you need is tool paths based of half of a profile of your part.

Though I will admit I'm not intimately familiar with any kind of CAM software that's more expensive than free-fiddy, I do wave a wrench at old cnc turning centers for a living.
