Hi guys, I feel it’s been a while since I posted anything useful so I wanted to expand on @Vince.Fab topics around machining aluminium along with peoples use of fusion 360 and adaptive tool paths. I appreciate many will be inspired by the shiny aluminium parts that have been floating around here as late, with many curious of how best to use fusion 360 for 2 sided and more complex milling operations…
With that in mind I have pulled out one of my old files that needs a number of different milling operations.
I thought those interested could all download the file, create your tool paths, re-share then explain your logic. It might prompt people to think of other ways to machine stuff…
The part in question has no use for most people but has some interesting elements.
I will of course share my-own tool paths as as soon as I’ve made them
Here is the file
I’ve assumed it sits within a 140x60x20 mm block of aluminium stock
