Hello all, apologies as this is not model related but could do with some advice.

Anyone using Fusion 360 commercially for machining?

Hi Brian - not commercially but lots of us will be using it for milling and turning, including me.

There are many industrial users - but what’s behind the question ?

We currently use Autodesk / Delcam Power mill and Power shape for all our tool room machining.

Since Autodesk bought up Delcam they have been developing Fusion 360 using Delcams technology.

We have recently bought a Hurco 5 axis machine, I am trying to decide if to stick with Autodesk or move over to Hexagon Visi NC (which we use for all our design)

I have spoken to our Autodesk dealer but don't seem to be able to get a simple answer to these questions.

1. Will fusion 360 be able to produce cutter paths for simultaneous 5 axis machining?

2. How much will it cost?

Thanks for any help
