Serial to CNC
This add-on was developed to bridge the final gap between Autodesk® Fusion 360™ CAM system and the CNC machine. Many other CAM programs have this feature, and now Fusion 360 does too!
Many older CNC machines accept programs via RS-232 Serial. This makes it very quick and easy to send new programs to the machine.
This add-on requires the CNC Machine and Computer to have an RS-232 serial connection.
A serial connection is the fastest way to copy programs to machines.
Workflow with USB
- Post-program, and save it to the USB drive
- Unplug the USB drive
- Walk over to the CNC Machine
- Plug the USB drive into the machine
- Copy over the program
If you have to fix something in the program, start the process all over again
Workflow with RS-232 Serial:
- Post the program
- Open up the serial connection on the machine
- Send the program using the Serial to CNC add-on
Has the ability to save more than 1 machine profile for computers that are connected to more than 1 machine.
Automatically selects the last posted file (provided it's in the same directory).
Allows configuration of Baud Rate, Parity, Data Bits, Stop Bits, and COM port.
