Recording: Preparing Files for Waterjet Cutting: Fusion 360 to ProtoMAX


Are you using a waterjet cutter in your classroom or interested in learning more about the technology? In this Tech Tuesday demo and discussion, see the 3D CAD-to-waterjet cutter workflow using Autodesk Fusion 360 and the ProtoMAX Waterjet Cutter software suite. We’ve used our ProtoMAX system to cut everything from stone to steel and, most recently, produced custom parts for a local First Robotics team! Learn how we export 2D sketch profiles from 3D CAD and import them with a couple of clicks into ProtoMAX’s toolpath creation environment.
