Fusion to CNC streamlining

Hi, I am newer to Fusion and trying to figure out a problem and if Fusion can solve it. I have a product that is fairly simple like a box but I will need to have the ability to this in bespoke sizes to order. I will be using a 10 x 5 CNC router with tool changer and will be producing 20-50 a day most with size variations.


What I would like to know is if it is possible to create model templates of the products that when have the cnc tool settings already associated to each cut so if it change it from 1m to 2m it will and send it to the CNC no additional work is needed?


I am basically trying to streamline the creating model to clients size to the CNC as so many will need to be done. Any advise or suggestions are welcome. Thank you.

At present, you've got a couple of options:

1) Create all your toolpaths and save them as a Template. You can then insert that template into any other similar part file, just needing to reselect your contours and whatnot.

2) Parameterize your design, program your toolpaths. Hop back over to Design, change your parameters, move back to Manufacture and regenerate your toolpaths. As long as features aren't completely removed, you should be in good shape.


We are working on developing "Configurations", so this would make it a somewhat trivial task...

Thanks alot Seth. So I think I would parametrize the design anyway for quickness of amending it and this is what I was hoping. Nothing will change drastically just longer/shorter.

Look forward to seeing what configurations brings. Thanks again.
