This course introduces you to the foundational knowledge in computer-aided design, manufacture, and the practical use of CNC machines. In this course we begin with the basics in Autodesk® Fusion 360™ CAD by learning how to properly sketch and model 3D parts. Before we program any toolpaths, we’ll explore CNC machining basics to ensure we have the ground level foundational knowledge needed to effectively define toolpaths. Finally, we explore the basics of setting up a CAM program and defining toolpaths to cut simple geometry. This is the same basic process that gets repeated for the design and manufacture of any part and is a critical step in learning and understanding the process.

TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO CAD, CAM, AND PRACTICAL CNC MACHINING
I am glad to learn such an amazing experience through these platform ,also helpful in taking my skills upwards.
this is the most meaninful thing i have done over the period of lockdown thanks for couursera for giving me the financial aid
Muy buen curso que explica como funciona la máquina CNC, ejemplos prácticos. Lo que más me gustó es que hay una lección en donde te explican todo lo relacionado para tu maquina CNC
Good course. It would have been interesting go deeper in other features of Fusion 360. Anyway, very helpful course and accurate course material.
