Vise and Jig in Fusion 360


(Markus) #1

Just curious if someone have modeld the Vise and the other tools for the Nomad in Fusion 360? It looks so cool when u can place ur model in the Vise in the software.


Vise design files, request

I have the vice modeled. Modeled it in Inventor and uploaded to Fusion.

Is there any Chance… I might use it?:slight_smile:

Of course! I’ll post a link for you tomorrow. I’m away from my PC at the moment.

For now, I’ll post a link to the step file which you can import into Fusion 360. I’m going to be locked up in a meeting for a few hours so I’ll post a Fusion 360 link/file later.

Note: Fusion 360 parts are not constrained for component movement. I’ll get around to that someday. :wink:

Thanks @Heathenx!. I had modeled my vise also to use for collision detection but not as detailed and pretty. Have downloaded yours and will use from now on. I have a sea of holes table that I’ve also modeled and now use as reference to place objects on my work surface and get very good zero placement based on my actual machine.

That is… AMAZING! You got the details so nice!
Is it possible to move the actual block to my model in Fusion in any easy way? =)

@Japmaco Just import the model to Fusion 360 first via the file manager

then, once in your library, use the Insert into Current Design to place it into where you need it.

Hope it helps.

@patofoto do you have your sea of holes model to share? And if anyone has the flip jig modeled, that would be awesome to have too.


(Patricio Suarez) #11

@csader I certainly can share both. I have the sea of holes from high-tech systems and the low profile vise from Carbide3D. They are both inside a Fusion 360 project. What format do you need?


(Chris Sader) #12

Not sure what formats best for using in CAM. Maybe just the .f3d?


(Patricio Suarez) #13

Yes, .f3d native would be best if you use Fusion 360. Here you go.

Nomad 833 Bed Holes and Low Profile Vise.f3d.zip (822.3 KB)

I have omitted holes from the bed that I don’t use for work holding. I wanted to see very clearly where I had holes available that I could use. Let me know if you need help with anything.

Thank you to everyone who shared the files! It is most appreciated!
