Re: Autodesk Fusion 360 with Roland DG milling machines

I saw Thanos Makris who has some nice Fusion 360 CAM videos to watch. (I say watch as I do not speak Greek). :lol: In this video he constructs a cylinder with spiral pockets and mills them on his ZCL-40A rotary axis on his MDX-40A machine. Very Nice seeing Roland machines in action. Thanos MDX-40A S...

Re: Autodesk Fusion 360 with Roland DG milling machines

HSM Works is the core CAM engine Autodesk installed into Fusion 360.

Re: Post Processor for Solidworks CAM

Hi, we did not develop the post processor for HSM, or any other system. We just helped them with the codes that are provided with all Roland machines. So I expect CAMWorks etc have a Generic G-Code post that works on our machines. They can always contact us for help. Just ask them to goto their Loca...

Re: MDX-540S Z0 Sensor NC or RML command

How to use Modela Player v4

This has been a common question I have hearing with people acquiring old Roland MDX machines and Modela Player v4.
There are many resources, however, the people at Fabacademy have this tutorial which is easy to follow the principles.

Re: MDX-15 Driver/Serial to USB issue
