GCode from Autodesk Fusion 360 / Autodesk Print Studio

Recommended Posts


normally I do my designs using Autodesk Fusion 360, then I export STL file and go ahead in Cura.

Fusion 360 now allows to transfer the designed object to Autodesk Print Studio.

Print Studio allows to position the object on the built plate, rotation, scaling etc. similar to what Cura does.

A support tool and single layer preview is also included. It comes with many presets for a lot of 3D printers.

Ulimaker 2 is also available. Since this is quite interesting I wanted to give it a try and created the gcode using Print Studio and saved it on my SD card. The card I inserted into my UM2 and picked up the gcode file for printing.

But UM2 shows a message:

"This file will override machine settings with setting from the slicer"

I cancelled this since I do not know if it damages something on my UM2.

So what settings will be overridden here? Can I go ahead printing?

I'm currently testing 3D printing made with Autodesk Print Studio.

So far it looks promising, no problem whatsoever.

Found that Print studio is better for creating support structure, and I love how it start 3D print process - spreading first few layers on build plate rather than just extrude it out in corner, like Cura does.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
