Well that means I can't use it after free time... however I did find a LinuxCNC post processor.

Ok that's to bad! i guess we are a little spoiled in Sweden since 100mbit fiber connections is getting quite standard.

Thanks for sharing the post processor!

I ditched solidworks a couple years ago when they wanted me to pay two years worth the back maintenance fees. I originally switched to Inventor which I liked more than Fusion, but Fusion has all the extra CAM goodies in it for free. I have been using Fusion for almost a year exclusively and have been happy with it. The post processing to LCNC has been working good so far, I have not run into any challenges with it. Yes it can be pissy with the video card. It runs pretty good on my 10 year old laptop, and runs awesome on my desktop that I run dual video cards in. My only complaint is multiple monitor compatibility of being able to drag one drawing to another screen. I have been told by there developers that is on the to do list to make better.

It will be interesting for sure, going to see if I can cobble up the post processor for my plasma table. The post looks pretty straight forward as far as post processors go. One thing I did in Sheetcam post was to pull the volts from the tool name and insert that into my G code to be passed along to the thc component. I really should just finish my golang dxf to G code project, it's 90% done.

JT is the file you've attached the LinuxCNC post procesor for F360? Where should i put this file? I guess somewhere in the f360 folder on the hard drive:) Then will i find "LinuxCNC" on the post processors list in F360?

Thanks!

I am in the same situation with limited monthly data usage. also, F360 has an awkward interface and files are saved to the cloud instead of your local hard drive. I've read it is "defective by design". Too bad, as it has a lot of nice and powerful cad/cam features

I've never figured out how to use Fusion 360 just found the post processor on a machining forum.
