Default Slicer for Fusion360 (for making buck sections)

For those of you making bucks from your 3D CAD models -- this Autodesk video might be of interest to you. (later part of video especially) Price = free. I've used the Fusion 360 CAD/CAM for over two years without much issue aside from cloud-based connectivity issues.

I am a Fusion 360 user. Yes it is free for individuals.

This add on program looks to be a good solution fo building a buck after the shape is developed in Fusion 360.

Many good video tutorials on youtube.

Thanks, Mark and Richard for the Fusion 360 info.

I have been looking for a good, truly free cad/cam. After reading your posts, I spent this morning researching 360. It appears to be a robust enough program for my needs, and there are plenty of tutorials out there.

From the tutorials, it looks like it models somewhat similarly to SolidWorks, which I have enjoyed for free as a community college student as long as I was currently enrolled in a SW class. There is a deeply discounted student version of SW available to me as a student, but it's still not free, and times out.

Thanks for the link. Just recently started playing with Fusion 360. It has a 30 day trial is what I found, where is this free version or is this 30 day trial it?

Is it possible to use sheet metal as the buck instead of plywood? or is that a bad idea?
