Hi everyone, my name is Matt Perez and welcome to my course Fusion 360 – Getting Started with CAM.

I am an Application Expert at SolidBox providing CAD consulting and training across the country.

Fusion 360 is an amazingly versatile 3d CAD platform currently taking the world by storm! In this course, we are going to learn a bit about Computer Aided Manufacturing, or CAM, in Fusion 360.

Some of the major topics that we will cover include Design for Manufacture, Basics of Machining, 2.5 vs 3 axis toolpaths and Toolpath creation.

By the end of this course you will have a solid foundation with Fusion 360 and be on your way to manufacturing your own amazing products!

Before beginning the course you should be familiar with Fusion 360 as well as basic Machining, but it’s laid out so the topics are arranged from easy to more difficult so anyone can follow along with little prior experience.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn Fusion 360 with the Fusion 360- Getting Started with CAM course, at Pluralsight.
