    Hey guys, I know F360 is not recommended but I have been using the program for years and am pretty comfortable with it. My last CNC used GRBL and Fusion would spit that flavor of code out with no issues. I really would like to not mess with the Board Ryan provided. Does anyone know a way to have Fusion program the cuts in Marlin?

    Thanks in advance,

    On the milling basics page https://www.v1engineering.com/milling-basics/ is a link to a Fusion 360 post-processor for Marlin.

    Thanks BT, is there anywhere that shows how to make the Marlin an option to pick in the Fusion post processer? I have no clue what to do on the GitHub page.

    Good question for me since I don’t use Fusion360 for CAM, just for the CAD.  So, here’s what I suggest.  First thing would be to download the post-processor from Guffy’s github and put it in a directory that you can find again.  The next step I’d take would be to read the post processor training guide (linked at the bottom of Guffy’s github) – looks like page 1-3 has the info on how to install the post processor in Fusion 360.  It also looks like Guffy has a sample configuration setup for his post processor.
