I have been contemplating upgrading BobCAD for a while and eventually decided to do it but I just couldn't get, what I consider, a reasonable upgrade deal from the UK agent. I then thought I might as well try Fusion 360 and see what it was like. I am not a fan of the cloud based storage and saving to your drive seems to be a bit more involved than I would like but I suppose after a while it would become second nature. Ok, so onto Fusion 360, the drawing side of it seemed familiar and I picked it up fairly easily but assemblies were a bit more of a challenge but it seems I can more or less do an assembly in the one drawing instead of making lots of single drawings and then putting them into an assembly. Here is the first thing I managed yesterday, I am sure I will get better at it with practice and find easier and quicker ways to do things but anyway here is the playback of the steps I took. Mind you it took me hours to do this but as said once I find my way around it should only be a five or ten minute task. This evening I have been messing with the lathe CAM, it had been driving me daft until I discovered that I was picking the wrong part of the drawing to define the Z rotation axis. It is quite a bit different from BobCAD but so far it seems fairly good. Making your own tools up is quite easy once you understand how to do it, next step for me will be to see if I can make up a template like I have in BobCAD so that I only have to import a drawing and most settings such as tools, spindle speeds, feeds etc will be ready for me to just choose the geometry for each operation.
