Custom Fusion 360 Post Delivered in Under 24 Hours

Customer Challenge

Angel City Woodshop was born in early 2016, founded by Paul Moorhead. Paul was a self-taught furniture maker and operated alone for some time. Over the years we have expanded into a team and have built a reputation in Los Angeles as one of the premier high-end custom furniture shops in the city. Our goal is to produce pieces that celebrate beauty, craftsmanship, and high design for every client we serve.

Like many small businesses, our needs and challenges are always shifting fast. We had long-outgrown our original shop space in Mid-City Los Angeles and recently moved to a much larger space near downtown. CNC routing has become essential for our process, but we had been using the machine of a neighbor in our old location. When we moved we were finally able to purchase a top-of-the-line machine for ourselves.

Our machine was made custom and has very specific needs in terms of post-processing. We turned to Autodesk Solution Provider NexGenCAM to custom produce the Fusion 360 post-processor that would maximize the capabilities of our CNC router to meet the needs of our shop.

Project Goals

We wanted to integrate a seamless way to post straight from Autodesk Fusion 360 to our new DMS Freedom machine router with a Fagor controller. It’s essential that we can trust our programming to do exactly what we want. Due to project deadlines, we needed the Fusion post processor the next day.

Solution

When we turned to NexGenCAM, they were extremely accommodating and delivered our post-processor quickly and on schedule. We couldn’t have done it without them. Fusion 360 is our choice due to the ability to streamline the workflow from CAD to CAM to the machine.

Business Outcome

We now have the integration and quick, ease of use we desired for our custom furniture shop. Our CNC work is crucial to our design and creation process and we have hit the ground running, thanks to NexGenCAM. Fusion 360 and NexGenCAM brought together a great solution for my team.

Conclusion

We had a great experience with NexGenCAM. We had a very specific programming need and they did a fantastic job delivering. Their post-processor is working great! NexGenCAM is quick to respond and help address any Fusion 360 questions. Fusion 360 continues to perform at a high level.
