Autodesk Fusion 360 | Multi-Axis Deposition Toolpaths - New in Preview

Autodesk Fusion 360 users now have access to the “Additive Multi-Axis Deposition” extension preview, which allows them to create multi-axis Additive Manufacturing toolpaths. Remove the constraints of regular 3-axis Additive Manufacturing and make full use of your multi-axis machine by creating 3, 3+2, and multi-axis toolpaths. In this video, the Fusion 360 team will introduce the workflow for making your own multi-axis additive toolpaths.

Users can create and store process information in the form of a deposition tool (currently limited to DED type tools), create planar or non-planar part slices from a defined base surface, define a raster infill and perimeter pass build style, as well as control the tool axis for deposition. Fusion 360 users can also visualize their toolpath layer by layer, play through simulation, or produce a deposition stock model that can be used as input to a subsequent milling setup for part finishing.

This new toolpath capability is primarily aimed at driving machines with Directed Energy Deposition capability, however, with some post processor modifications it can also be used for other multi-axis deposition applications (e.g. FFF, large scale AM and concrete printing). Please remember, we’d love to hear your feedback on these toolpaths. Feedback can be made via the Feedback Hub, accessible within Fusion 360.
