    g704 Conversion and Fusion 360

    Im finishing up converting my g704 to a CNC, and will be using Mach 3 controller. I do all my designs in Fusion 360, and would like to also do the gcode setup there instead of something like cam bam. Has anyone setup a g704 conversion in fusion 360 as a machine? If so what all settings did you use? I am not sure if this is a question for this sub form, or the fusion 360 sub forum, but figured id start here. Any help or direction in getting the machine added in 360 would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Fusion 360 has few Mach3 post processors. The fact that you have a G704 makes no difference, only the controller software is important.

    Ok i wasnt sure, so the machine doesn't make any difference, as long as when you do the post processing you use a mach3 processor? I thought that was the case, but wanted to make sure
