    Generative design in Fusion is not just for complex aerospace components that require expensive and time-consuming additive manufacturing or 5-axis CNC. In this session we will demonstrate an end-to-end workflow from 2.5-axis Fusion generative design through CAM for “everyday” CNC parts which can be programmed and machined in a matter of minutes, not hours or days. Starting with generative design, we will explore how to make the best use of the new 2.5-axis machining constraints with one of the Autodesk nerds behind the technology, then discuss editing and refining outcomes. Finally, one of the Autodesk experts in CAM for generative outcomes will share strategies for programming and producing the generative parts. The emphasis will be on improving designer and manufacturing engineer productivity, reducing CAD, CAM, and machining time, and going from problem definition through production in hours, not days.

    Key Learnings

    • Learn how to produce and refine manufacturable generative design outcomes
    • Learn how to modify outcomes to incorporate additional design intent and prepare for manufacture
    • Learn how to generate efficient CNC toolpaths to machine generative geometries
    • Discover the productivity benefits of an end-to-end design-to-manufacturing workflow
