Fusion 360 Machining Extension will let you extend your program and get the most out of Fusion 360. You can program more effectively using top-notch production tools and technologies.

By automating your workflows, you’ll spend less time programming, eliminate repetitive tasks and avoid errors. You will also significantly increase the quality of your manufactured parts. Not only will you work faster and better, but you will also have more control over your machines and processes.

One of Fusion 360 extensions advanced production technologies is on-machine verification. For example, you can make your verification process run smoothly with the surface inspection. With this, you can let the machine do its job unattended and make better use of your time.

You can also carry out 5-axis production with Fusion 360 Machining Extension. This will improve your surface finishes and the efficiency of your process. In addition, you will avoid miscommunication during production.

Thanks to the various features, you can also easily adjust your milling routing paths. Among other options, you can easily and quickly shorten your paths and develop efficient 4-axis paths.

Thanks to the automation of your programming, you can simplify and speed up your drilling processes because the software recognizes the holes, selects the tools, and chooses what action to take. And all automatically.

Finally, Autodesk Fusion 360 Machining Extension has additive metal features. So you can enjoy the benefits of additive manufacturing.

Fusion 360 Machining Extension features

Programming automating

Utilize intelligent toolpaths that are capable of processing whole components safely and effectively to streamline and accelerate the production of milling and drilling programs.

Simultaneous 4- and 5-axis

With sophisticated 4- and 5-axis simultaneous toolpaths, the surface finish can be improved, fewer part setups are needed, and cycle efficiency is raised. Safely manipulate intricate parts with automatic collision avoidance.

Toolpath adjustments

With the aid of robust toolpath modification tools, accelerate CAM programming. To start machining sooner and produce components faster, make quick changes to toolpaths without needless recalculations.

Part inspection

Utilize spindle-mounted probes and CAD-based probing to gauge and raise the precision of your CNC machining. Time is saved and parts of higher quality are produced thanks to intelligent part alignment.
