I’d like to learn fusion 360 for the X-Carve side of things, because I think that would allow me to do more 3dish designs with the X-carve.
The plasma cutter we’re looking at is one of the langmuir systems (langmuirsystems.com) cnc setups. When I first looked, I noticed Fusion 360 is their recommended program. After your post I thought a second and realized it would make more sense if Inkscape were what I used (not very good at that either) so I looked a little deeper.
According to this page on the site, Inscape is usable for designing signs, which is likely most of what my students would be doing, but I think that F360 is still used to send the work to the robot to do the cutting, so at that point I wonder if it wouldn’t just make more sense to learn F360 in 2d rather than 3 different programs prior to the cut.
I have never been involved with a plasma cnc machine, so I’m not sure the best route here, I just know that I’d rather invest my time in getting competent with one program rather than crappy at several.
Did you learn Fusion just in your past, or was there some sort of class that you took to be able to teach it? I’m slowly getting better at youtube learning, but I’d love to find some sort of structured class (especially during summer months) since I probably won’t know what I’m not learning with a self-taught-youtube approach.
