Cutting Skateboard Outline on 3-axis CNC

Hello, I'm an experienced SolidWorks user but new to Fusion 360 and CNC programming. I am trying to cut the outline of a skateboard on a 3-axis CNC. It is essentially a 2D profile projected onto a contoured surface. I just need to program a single loop cut where the cutter follows the contoured surface.

 

I have 3D models for both the final shaped skateboard and the uncut panel (see attached). I'm wondering how I should set up my stock, what type of milling operation I should use, and how to set that up.

 

Sorry if this is very basic. I'm brand new to CNC programming.

 

Thank you!

If your stock matches what you've drawn then you can use, From Solid in your setup.

Also no need to project the sketch, you can use the Project toolpath.

Can you share your design for more help or mock something up? Also please paste pictures into your messages as it's easier to read and view.

 

Thanks Mark

Thank you Mark! Project toolpath was exactly the feature I was looking for!
