The Autodesk® Haas Driver® for Autodesk® Fusion 360® enables instant on productivity for Fusion 360 users who have Haas Milling Machines fitted with the Haas NGC controller.
An innovative workflow enables you to automatically search for Haas machines that are connected to your shop network and instantly add them to your Fusion 360 machine library. By reading data directly from each machine, an accurate representation of each machine configuration, settings and optional equipment fitted is created, helping to ensure the NC programs produced from Fusion 360 run correctly on the machine chosen in the Manufacturing setup.
Using the Haas Driver, NC programs can be sent directly to the machine, or they can be stored locally if preferred. Any time an NC Program is sent to a connected machine, the machine settings and configuration is compared to the machine in the Fusion 360 setup, with any changes in the configuration being highlighted to the user. If you use any of the Haas demountable rotary axes on your machines, these are detected automatically, and the Fusion 360 machines can be very quickly updated so you do not need to use different post processors for different machine configurations.
The Haas Driver removes the need to source, manage and maintain different post processors for each machine. Post processors become transparent to the user as they are managed automatically by the Haas Driver which means you always have the latest and most reliable post processor created by Autodesk for the Haas machines.
