Conturo Prototyping in Pittsburgh with Fusion 360 Machining Extension

When you think of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, you may recall its identity as a blue-collar steel town. But the days of traditional manufacturing are changing faster than you think, especially at Conturo Prototyping.

Founded in 2016 in the Point Breeze neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Conturo Prototyping began as a 1,000-square-foot shop. It has quickly grown to a 17,000-square-foot facility complete with ten multi-axis CNC mills and three CNC lathes, primarily because of its agile manufacturing workflow and world-class engineering customer support.

A key element of the shop’s success is Autodesk Fusion 360 and the machining extension, which allows the teams to simulate and automate many of the initial steps that used to be done manually. And in the digital world, each of these steps can be accomplished much more rapidly.

The Fusion 360 Machining Extension is a cost option that unlocks a vast array of advanced tools for CNC machining. In addition to 5-axis functions - including automatic collision avoidance, the extension unlocks access to machining strategies like steep and shallow that simplify the machining of complex, feature-rich parts. The extension also includes dedicated toolpaths and workflows that can be used with spindle-mounted probes to measure components throughout the machining process to help speed up set-up and improve overall part quality. The extension is considered as being extremely powerful, according to shop supervisor Patrick Fee.
