      3-axis Machining

      Access a range of powerful 3-axis machining strategies to rapidly create high-quality NC code to rough and finish your 3D parts. Intuitive workflows make it simple to program individual features or entire parts. Some of these capabilities require a subscription to Fusion 360 and the Machining Extension.

      I needed the ability to cut path the base of the part to avoid tool charges. This has allowed me to reduce the production time by nearly 80%.
      - Dave Killalea

      Multi-axis Positional Machining

      Unleash your shop's multi-axis capabilities with 3+1 and 3+2 (positional) machining. Machine parts with fewer setups, using shorter, more rigid cutting tools, for improved part accuracy and faster cycle times. Some of these capabilities require a subscription to Fusion 360 and the Machining Extension.

      Learn more

      With our other program, it would take an hour to calculate toolpaths. With Fusion 360, just couple of minutes.
      - Jeff Hooper Backhand Bikes

      4 & 5-axis Simultaneous Machining

      Use specialized 4- and 5-axis toolpaths to achieve superior surface finish. Additional tool axis controls and automatic collision avoidance help you achieve safe, smooth and predictable machine motion. Access to this functionality requires a subscription to Fusion 360 and the Machining Extension.

      Frequently asked questions for machinists (FAQ)

      CAD/CAM software is computer-aided design & computer-aided manufacturing software for CNC machinists.

      Computer-aided design & computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) software is used by CNC machinists to design and manufacture prototypes, finished products, and production runs of products.

      CNC stands for computer numerical control. There are many types of CNC machines, and this is often the main step in the process of creating a component or part through material removal. Once a part has been designed in CAD software, CAM (computer aided manufacturing) software is used to generate toolpaths, plans that tell a CNC machine how to move.
