I´ve been learning Fusion 360 for the past two months and still do not have a clear understanding on how things work sometimes. In this case, I need to create a mesh by carving horizontal and vertical lines, combined with holes over MDF and the challenge I’m having is that when I try to create the lines in F360, the software just convert the long lines into small areas where all the paths cross.
Make sure you create the lines in a different sketch (on the same plane) than the sketch that was used to create the holes, then hide the initial sketch associated to the holes (click on the “eye”), and you should be able to only select the lines
That is something that I already tried with no luck: holes, horizontal and vertical lines are all in different sketches on the same plane. But when I create the last sketch for the vertical lines is when everything becomes merged
Even if F360 “hints” at those surfaces, if you position your mouse on the vertical lines you can still select (only) them.
If you go to Manufacture worspace, create a 2D contour toolpath, you can then for example select vertical lines individually (making sure to declare it as an open contour while you do it) and have the toolpath follow these lines.
Here’s an example with just a few lines selected, and using a 45° v endmill, and a -1mm depth of cut:
Hi @Julien, just to let you know that I also found another way to create the lines. It was by creating a new plane over the face of the body I wanted to cut. It was an offset plane with 0 mm offset. In that way, the lines did not merge, and I could generate a cut to draw the whole lines from side to side
