Importing Gcode from Fusion 360 into Easel
This video tutorial shows you how to download the Easel post-processor, install the post-processor in Fusion 360, and save your gcode toolpaths for use with Easel. In order to use this video, your project's CAM toolpaths should already be generated in Fusion 360.
While the tutorial is shown on a Mac computer, you can take similar steps on a Windows computer. You can also follow these steps on a Windows computer:
1. Download the post-processor from Easel by going to Import > Gcode > Autodesk Fusion 360. Click the link to download the Easel.cps file.
2. Move the file into one of the Autodesk Fusion 360 folders located on your computer, and note the folder location.
3. In Fusion 360, open the Post Process dialog under the CAM menu. Set the configuration folder to the folder containing the downloaded Easel.cps file.
4. Select Easel.cps as the post configuration in the Fusion 360 Post Process menu, then save your project.
