    This class will discuss how material, parts, tooling, tool holders, CAD, and CAM are influenced by the move to 3- or 4-axis computer numerical control (CNC) machining. Any machine shop, manufacturing company, R&D group, or entrepreneur can gain significant advantages from 5-axis machining, whether simultaneous 5-axis or positional 3+2. The Autodesk CAM software systems, including Fusion 360 software, offer solid workflows to adopt 5-axis machining, including CAM sample files, vendor work holding, integrated parametric CAD for modeling fixtures and raw material, and 5-axis CAM toolpaths.

    Key Learnings
