Fusion 360 Post Processor for Plasma

Does anyone know where I can find a Fusion 360 post processor for plasma?

I have been using Inkscape and Sheetcam for CAD/CAM but recently started playing with Fusion 360. I quickly learned that Fusion 360 files when exported to .dxf files do not have the correct measurements which makes their .dxf files useless. I can't export the Fusion 360 file to a dxf and still use Sheetcam to generate the gcode. The only other option I have is to find a post processor. Of course Fusion360 does not have a post processor for LinuxCNC plasma. I'm hoping someone out there has created one or kjnows where to obtain one.

Thanks,
Bob

there are lots of in the standard DROP down menue of Fusion360

it mainly depends on what PLASMA setup you use
Pircing and Delayy time handling

Bob,

I am working on a post processor for Fusion 360 to be used with the plasma component plasmac (see Another plasma component ). I'm not quite ready to release it to the world - I need to clean up a few things and add some functionality. You might also want to look at Post processor for plasma C . I've posted some ideas there and am waiting on some feedback. A lot of the guys here use Sheetcam. I've been using Fusion 360 for CNC routing and 3d printing so I hope to stick with it for plasma cutting once I get my machine finished (about 85% done now).

Have you tried using the standard LinuxCNC post and programming a plasma operation?
You might not need a dedicated post.

Docwelch, Thanks for the info. I will check the links you included in your post. I am currently using Sheetcam and Inkscape to make most of the parts I need. Would be nice to be able to use Fusion360, but the dimensions are wrong when you export it to a dxf file.

I haven't tried anything in fusion360 yet, other than trying to learn how to draw with it.
