Fusion 360 drag knife tool path creation

Post by WhiteRoom Skis on Wed Mar 29, 2017 5:12 pm

Does anyone use F360 to create their tool paths? If so can you give a description of how you create them? F360 doesn't have a native drag knife tool path but it does have some other 2d cutting tools

How do you add the swivel code into the G code F360 creates?

Thank you

Vin

manually adding corner actions is extremely time consuming. You can try to use the excel program on the donektools web site, but that requires a certain aptitude with coding.

The only software currently offering corner actions is vectric's v-carve and apsire and SheetCAM.

If you are doing external sharp corners, it is possible to use a plasma loop, but that does waste some material. If you are die cutting base graphics, I would recommend rounding all your corners or purchasing sheetCAM.
