Slicer for Autodesk Fusion 360 Tutorial: Prepare your files for laser cutting

This is a laser cutting tutorial for beginners in “Slicer for Autodesk Fusion 360”. With this software, you can slice your 3D model into 2D laser cut parts and then assemble them together into amazing 3D structures. 3D model (2).png Slicer for 360” software uses different construction techniques to build your model based on 2D slices and animated assembly instructions. It is a software that turns your 3D models into artefacts. It slices and converts 3D models into 2D patterns that you can laser cut out of any flat material, such as Plywood, Cardboard or Plastic.  With “Slicer for Fusion 360” you can download your plans in .EPS, .DXF or .PDF formats which are supported Laser Cutting file formats. Unfortunately, you cannot use these files for 3D printing, since they are not in compatible formats for 3D printing. “Slicer for Fusion 360”  can be used as standalone or as an add-in for “Fusion 360”, meaning that you can create a 3D model in “Fusion 360” software and then send your file to “Slicer for Fusion 360”. After reading the tutorial, you will be able to:
