We fixed an important issue where if you created a FFF setup, and tried to edit any print setting, Fusion 360 crashed after you clicked on the OK button.

We’ve added Mazak machines (VCN-570, VCN-570C, VC-Ez 20, VC-Ez 26) to the Machine library, along with the Pocket NC V2-10. The Machine Library lets you manage your machine tools by using Machine Configurations to define your available machines and resources.
