"Error: Cam kernel died unexpectedly" every tool path, every model.

Hi all, I hope you're doing well. I booted up Fusion 360 this morning in the hopes of doing some machining, I had just finished up a model and switched to the manufacture workspace. My first operation was a simple 2D contour, but when I hit ok I got the error: "Cam kernel died unexpectedly". I tried changing some parameters within the tool path, deleting the operation and trying again, and calculating different types of tools paths, and got the same error each time. I then tried opening a different model which I have machined hundreds of times, and found that all of my tested and reliable tool paths had the red exclamation point next to them with the exact same error. I check all of my other tried and true models and found the exact same thing. I've read through every thread I can find on this error, but I haven't seen anyone else who had it on every tool path and every model, most were able to resolve it by changing some parameter within the tool path, I am not. I have also been experiencing an unusual number of crashes today, I'm not sure if that's related, but I thought I would mention it. Just in case this info is relevant, I'm running Fusion 360 on an M1max MacBook Pro with 32gb of ram. Does anyone have any idea what's going on here?

Hi @crhfineart .


You will probably have to reinstall it, but I can't give you any advice because I've never had that happen before.

I would suggest that you consult the "Fusion 360 Manufacture" forum, as there may be others with similar experience.
