    Re: Help with a projekt

    Right click on the body in the browser pane, then select "Physical Material". Select the material out of the possibilities, and drag/drop the icon for that material onto your part.

    Re: Help with a projekt

    Kasper,

    I suppose this will work. I don't really see any issues with your cutting methods -- Adaptive is very versatile, and typically works fine on parts like these.

    Did you download these...
  3. Re: Mixed up tools and height offsets

    If your machine's control does not support "pre-call" of the next tool, it really shouldn't matter. I'd "guess" that lines 35 and 115 would just be ignored.

    If the post you're using works...

    Re: Fusion 360 depth of cut issue

    I looked at the first model, will look at the second one in a bit.

    Since you are setting zero at your table (top of spoil board, I assume), I would recommend breaking your roughing pass into 2...

    Re: How to cut both ends of a slot

    This was a quick stab at it. Just repeat what I did from the other side, and you should be set to go.

    Here's the link to the F3D file which I shoved into my Dropbox: ...

  8. Re: Fusion 360 Cam seems to make me use smaller bits then I would think

    Corner radius:


    422768
  9. Re: Fusion 360 Cam seems to make me use smaller bits then I would think

    No no... not a ball end mill, just one with a bit of a corner radius. Typically called a "bull nose", but actually all that's required is a .005" or .010" corner radius and they hold up WAY better. ...
  10. Re: Fusion 360 Cam seems to make me use smaller bits then I would think

    It looks OK on my computer, though if it was me, I'd probably put a piece of machinable wax in the machine and run your tool paths on an expendable piece of material before going after the real part....
  11. Re: Fusion 360 Cam seems to make me use smaller bits then I would think

    The dimension between the inside walls you are machining is .438".

    You're using a .375" end mill. Minimum radius was set at .0375", so double that is .075".

    Add .075" to .375" and you have...
  12. Re: Fusion 360 Cam seems to make me use smaller bits then I would think

    On the 2nd tab for your adaptive tool path, reduce minimum cutting radius from .0375" to .010" and you should be good to go.
  13. Re: Fusion 360 Cam seems to make me use smaller bits then I would think

    sent you private msg
  14. Re: Fusion 360 Cam seems to make me use smaller bits then I would think

    If you're so inclined, send me your f3d model via PM and I'll take a look at it.
  15. Re: Fusion 360 Cam seems to make me use smaller bits then I would think

    truckeic,

    I've made the exact same part (as you have shown above) with a 3/8" EM with zero issues.

    The only difference I can see is that you have zero lead in/out, and also I selected a...

    Re: How to do Z Axis compensation

    Yep.... just bump the tool length offset +.0003" and you should be good! (which makes the machine think your tool length is .0003" shorter/higher/positive than you had measured it). That way the...
  17. Re: Changes to Fusion 360 MAC installer

    fwiw The displays are easy to get off. (just make a paper thin pizza cutter wheel out of a piece of delrin -- I can send you a picture of the one I made... works much better than the iFixit one). ...
  18. Re: Changes to Fusion 360 MAC installer

    Ah... that was about the time I changed installer method on my Macs. Maybe I'm reading my own issues wrong, and it was just coincidence that Autodesk sorted out a few bugs about the time I made...
  19. Re: Changes to Fusion 360 MAC installer

    Good feedback, thanks! To me, the update process when run through the Mac App store seemed "cleaner" and faster. Doesn't matter any more though, as that option is gone. Possibly Autodesk...
  20. Changes to Fusion 360 MAC installer

    Not sure how many are on a Mac, but updates are no longer available through the Mac App Store.

    This will be interesting to see how it shakes out -- I've been using Fusion for about 3 years, and...
  21. Re: ramp option not able to unlselect

    Yep... as Jim said: just select "plunge" if you are confident that your cutter can handle it in the material you are cutting (and the speed that you are plunging).

    (... and if you choose to, you...

    Re: attempting first CAM on fusion 360

    No way of knowing. You're cutting MDF on ... is it a CNC router table? Not sure what cutter you're using. If you're able to cut 60"/min in a straight line without any issues, then you "might" need...

    Re: attempting first CAM on fusion 360

    It may be perfectly fine in a straight line or a larger profile, but programming 60"/min in something like "boring" a 5/16" hole with a 1/4" end mill might overwhelm your your machine's ability to...

    Re: attempting first CAM on fusion 360

    OK... uploading another file for you to look at.

    I'm making the assumption that you would like to use that 1/4" end mill for most everything, so.... I created a way to cut the slots using 3...
