CNC routers have taken the world by storm.
From affordable DIY desktop CNC routers to expensive industrial machines, this course covers it all.
What you will learn:
- How to model any shape using Fusion 360 CAD/CAM software - no previous experience required.
- Importing DXF files to Fusion and converting them to tool paths ready to cut on your machine
- Using the correct tool paths to produce your parts
- Output to G-Code files from Fusion 360 that your machine can read
- Reading and editing the G-Code files
- Complete G-Code programming tutorials to master programming the language your machine understands
- Every G-Code and every M-Code explained
- How to write full programs using G-Code
- Machining tips, tricks and much, much more!
Gain full control of your machine and make any part you can imagine with both CAD/CAM and manual CNC programming with G-Code!
This course includes Fusion 360 modelling, computer manufacture and working with DXF files.
A complete Fusion CAD/CAM training package aimed specifically at CNC router owners/programmers and operators.
But wait... there's more!
Also included in this course,
A complete G-Code programming tutorial aimed specifically at CNC router owners/programmers and operators!
Upon completion, you will be able to make ANY part you can imagine on your CNC router.
My journey into the world of machining started in 1991 when I landed an apprenticeship at British Aerospace. For the first year, I studied general engineering principles where I learnt about every type of shop floor manufacture from welding, sheet metal work, bench fitting, tool making and of course machining. The following two years I specialised in manual machining, I found this to be a very important stage of my study as learning the feel of a manual machine enabled me to understand the limits of the CNC machines later in my career, and also gave me knowledge on how different materials behave under the high stress of the material removal process.
Moving on to CNC machines was a massive life-changing moment, I still remember that day clearly. Seeing the possibilities of rapid industrial manufacture blew me away and grabbed my interest like nothing else, I was hooked. The rest of my apprenticeship was spent with journeyman teaching me how to program and operate 2 axis Lathes then onto 3 axis milling machines, then 5 axis mills until eventually I was setting, programming and operating 7 Axis machining centres with dual spindles and live tooling.
Over 26 years experience
At this point in my training, I had finished the college courses I needed to be a qualified CNC Machinist. So I enrolled in night school and studied advanced CNC programming then another course on Computer Aided Design (CAD) Computer Aided Manufacture (CAM) and Computer Aided Programming (CAP) I had a thirst for learning and wasn’t about to stop there. So I enrolled in an ONC/HNC 4-year university course studying mechanical engineering.
Altogether I had spent 10 years studying engineering by the time I was 26. After working as an Aerospace CNC machine tools engineer for over 26 years for GE, Airbus, Boeing and a range of military contractors I discovered I enjoy teaching apprentices. So I am building online courses to help the new guys in the trade to excel in this exciting world of CNC Machining.
