  • Fusion 360 is free for hobbyists, startups and makers. Its the perfect CAD/CAM system for CNC Routers. From affordable DIY desktop CNC routers to expensive industrial machines, this course covers it all. Gain full control of your machine and program any part you can imagine with CAD/CAM!
  • Last weekend I started another CNC router CAD model and finished it up last night. My goal on this one was to keep the overall width to a minimum by tucking the Y ballscrews in as close to the frame as possible. I think this would be a reasonably rigid machine, within the limitations of aluminum extrusions, and not difficult to build once machined parts are in hand.
  • This video is the fourth in a series that will teach the fundamentals of modeling in Fusion 360. My goal is to be easy to understand for beginners and all ag.
  • This one is quite specialist and detail-heavy because it covers what you need to do to create the necessary G-code for a CNC router out of Autodesk Fusion 360. As I've mentioned before on this forum, Fusion 360 is a great piece of software available from Autodesk free for students and educators and very reasonably priced for professionals.

Cutting ovals on CNC router - line segments vs arcs I've been struggling for some time with fusion outputting NC code that is many straight line segments, when it should be outputting arcs. The controller (AXYZ CNC router) bogs down due to the many short line segments, and never reaches full speed.

The following link can be used to access Whiteside's Library of Fusion 360 .tool Files for our most popular CNC bits. These files can be loaded into Fusion 360, and PDF files with drawings of each tool are also available on each product page.

These .tool files are available as a recommended starting point to assist you in the use of our tooling. Cutting speeds and feeds may need to be adjusted based on your specific application, material, depth of cut, and machine capabilities.

Download Here: Fusion 360 .tool Library


To add a .tool file, go to CAM and open the Tool Library in your software. Make sure the Whiteside .tool Library has been safely downloaded and saved to your computer. In the Tool Library, right click on Cloud and import the Tool Library from the location where the .tool Library was saved. Only use the .tool file for the specific Whiteside part number. By downloading any of these .tool files, you acknowledge the safety information below.


1) Never use the .tool file for any bit other than the specified Whiteside part number.

2) Always wear eye and ear protection along with dust masks. Avoid using bits while in loose clothing. Keep hands, body, clothing and hair away from the cutter.

3) Do not remove safety guards, and be sure to always feed against the cutter rotation. Never use dull or damaged cutters.

4) Disconnect power when changing bits or making adjustments, and always leave the power disconnected when not in use.
