CAM for 3-Axis Milling Professional Certification Prep
Open new doors of opportunity with a growing skillset. This course focuses on 3-axis milling to help you prepare for the Autodesk Certified Professional in CAM for 3 Axis Milling exam. Refresh your skills needed to properly perform setup and mill for 3-axis fixturing using Fusion 360.
After completing this course, you'll be able to:
- Analyze drawings and select appropriate manufacturing processes.
- Create a process plan for 3-axis milling.
- Create a CAM setup for CNC milling.
- Create 3-axis toolpaths for roughing and finishing.
- Create manual NC code and an NC program to output specific toolpaths.

Planning and setting up drawings and applying procedural concepts is essential for a successful operation. Planning and setting up includes analyzing supplied drawings, determining order of operations, and optimizing those operations.
Machine setup is integral to ensure agreement between the physical tool and the digital representation. When setting up a machine, you must plan and assemble digital workholding and determine appropriate workholding based on specifications.
Selecting appropriate machining strategies and defining tool orientation is critical for the success of machining. Toolpath containment can be defined using a selection of edges, sketches, or surfaces, and tool orientation includes determining tool tilt angles and optimizing tool contact.
Performing toolpath and machine simulations confirms stock removal procedures and ensures collision avoidance. Simulation review determines the required toolpath adjustments.
Outputting code permits troubleshooting for output errors.
When undergoing parts inspection, validating feature location and size is essential in updating machine parameters. Using program prove out in a 3-axis machine ensures a successful project.
