This course, Fusion 360: Getting Started with CAM, will take users from the very basics of 2.5 and 3 axis parts, through the process of a CAM setup, creating toolpaths, and generating the G-code. You will create a basic part while learning about design intent as well as design for manufacture (DFM). Finally, you will then take your CAD part and use the CAM workspace to start generating the required output. By the end of this course, you will understand the basics of design, tool path strategies, and output requirements to get the job done. Software required: Autodesk's Fusion 360.

Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Matt Perez and welcome to my course Fusion 360: Getting Started with CAM. I'm 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. And in this course we're going to learn a bit about Computer Aided Manufacturing, or CAM, in Fusion 360. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include design for manufacture, basics of machining, 2. 5 versus 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 is laid out so that 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 Fusion 360: Getting Started with CAM course at Pluralsight.
