I’m using Fusion 360 for CAM and Carbide Motion to drive the Shapeoko (haven’t jumped into UGS yet) and wondered what people’s preferences were for exporting their CAM from Fusion for the Shapeoko.
I don’t have the bitsetter (out of stock) so at the moment (I think) I need to run separate .nc files for each tool to let me use the regular bitzero X, Y, Z block to reset for Z height each time I change tool. (Have I got this wrong?)
If that’s correct, then… Given that it seems to make sense (especially for REST machining) to keep toolpaths that relate to each other, especially those with a common work zero, in one Setup, what workflows do people like using to export sets of toolpaths into files for Carbide Create to run?
I may well be missing something in Fusion, been using folders under the setup to group by tool so far and plan to buy a bitsetter if and when the health and supply chain issues reduce enough for them to come back into stock.
