In this video we cover the software workflow process and how that helps to create finished parts. We've simplified this process down to three simple steps: CAD - CAM - CUT. CAD to bring thoughts and ideas together into a model, CAM to turn that model into code, CUT to machine that code into reality.
We cover the various licenses Autodesk offers for its Fusion360 product.
Follow the below instructions to install the CutControl Post Processor for Fusion360.
Langmuir Systems provides customers the following Cutting Parameters Quick Reference Chart to use when programming cuts on MR-1. We believe that these values are a good, conservative starting point and we strongly recommend using these parameters when first cutting parts on MR-1. If you wish to push the machine beyond these starting values, we always recommend first making test cuts before running a new program. If you have any questions please reach out to tech support We are here to help!
This Cutting Parameters Quick Reference Chart is also available as a downloadable PDF.
We cover how to design parts in CAD using an example project: an aluminum coaster.
We continue the Coaster Project with the programming of the toolpaths in Fusion360 to cutting the first side on the MR-1.
We finish up the aluminum Coaster Project with second-side cutting using Fusion and CutControl.
