CAD Software / Fusion360 Workflow
« on: February 19, 2018, 05:31:28 AM »
Hey all

Just getting started with the whole cutting/engraving project and starting with various bits of software. From playing with the demo, I will definitely be getting T2Laser to run the machine, and due to the fact its free to use for personal use, I am learning Fusion360 for the design side.

I am mainly using the cutter to create custom cut foam for flight cases, so need to create digital versions of an object, and then cut out the correct size in the foam for a tight fit.

I have just started, and did my first cut going Fusion360->PDFtoDXF->T2Laser, and somewhere in the process, the overall size is greatly increased!

Has anyone done this before? Fusion360 seems to have some CAM capability to generate the G-Code, but I'm not even sure where to start on ensuring this is the correct code for our low power lasers.

Any help will be gratefully received!   

Thanks in advance

Lee
