About this book

These days, everyone can download a 3D software and start shaping concepts and ideas, however the actual transition from 3D models to real parts can be painful. This is because not every design is workable or cost effective with traditional production technologies (or even using additive manufacturing!).

The aim of this book is to give you a unique set of skills and knowledge to approach your own projects in the best possible way. Here, you will learn the pros and cons of different production technologies and which one is the best to choose according to your needs. Then, after understanding the potential of milling, turning, and printing, we will explore the CAM tools that Fusion 360 offers with basic examples and more advanced scenarios. By the end of this book, you will be able to understand potential issues and drawbacks, and how to find workarounds to avoid design criticalities.

With the lessons learned by this book, you will be able to approach your own projects more effectively, and have the skills to overcome any design or production related problems with ease.
