Course overview

Get practical, on-the-job skills needed for precision machining while preparing to complete the National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) Level 1 CAM Standard credential. Through a series of videos, practice exercises, and challenges, you’ll learn skills needed to read and understand detailed drawings, replicate 3D models, plan and create CNC toolpaths, and export G-code for final machining. Take the first step in advancing your knowledge of CAD and CAM using Fusion 360.

After completing this course, you'll be able to:

  • Understand design intent from detailed drawings.
  • Create a process plan for machining parts.
  • Create 3D CAD files from 2D drawings.
  • Create CNC toolpaths.
  • Export supporting documentation and G-code.
