Features

CAD-CAM technology is the result of decades of efforts by numerous people in the name of production automation. It is the vision of innovators and inventors, mathematicians and machinists, who are all working to build the future and drive production with technology. A lot of people use the term “CAD-CAM” when they talk about the software that is used to make things with a CNC machine. CAD stands for Computer-Aided Design and CAM stands for Computer-Aided Manufacturing, both of which are used to make things. CAD/CAM software is used to design and manufacture prototypes, finished products, and production runs of products.

Fusion 360  is one of the most popular free CNC software. It has both CAD and CAM functionalities, and its CAM settings are ideal for milling and laser techniques. Besides, this software supports many file types, including 3MF, DXF, and STL.

Fusion 360 can connect your design to several manufacturing techniques such as profiling, mill-turning, and turning. You could also perform 2.5-axis milling, 5-axis milling, probing, and 4-axis milling with this software.

More so, this software also aids you in decision-making, exhibiting a balance between performance and cost. Featuring a prediction component, this software helps predict the cost of manufacturing your design, with the production needs as its major parameter.

As one of the best free CNC software for beginners, Fusion 360 software has applications across various fields, from product designers and machinists to mechanical engineers. However, it works on only Windows and macOS operating systems.
