Course description

Fusion 360 CAM & CNC - Live Online Training

Fusion 360’s integrated CAM functionality brings enterprise-class machining capabilities to the desktop.

Our 2day Fusion 360 CAM and CNC training provides a thorough grounding for beginners, and our live online format means that you don't even need to leave your home or office!

It teaches everything you need to program your CNC machine to generate your Fusion 360 designs. You’ll learn how to use Fusion 360 to:

  • Create a suitable CAM setup.
  • Design fixtures.
  • Prepare your 2D and 3D models for machining on CNC routers and mills.
  • Perform 2D cutting.
  • Perform 3D machining.
  • Export your design as G-code suitable for your specific CNC machine.

The course is highly practical. We have a CNC machine that our trainer uses to demonstrate the techniques taught. 

Armada is a long-standing Autodesk Authorised Training Centre (ATC), and our Fusion 360 CAM and CNC courses are accredited by Autodesk.

Fusion 360 CAM and CNC courses are hosted by Autodesk Certified Instructors, with vast experience of using the application professionally. 

Suitability - Who should attend?

Delegates should be familiar with the fundamentals of Fusion 360, i.e. have attended Fusion 360 Essentials training or have equivalent knowledge through other means.

If you need to attend Fusion 360 Essentials first, we offer an Fusion360 training bundle price for both courses.
