Q - question

Generate CNC codes online - easy manufacturing of 3D CAD models.

A - answer With the new web-cloud application Autodesk 123D Design you can design a 3D model and generate CNC code to manufacture it -- all directly in your web browser.

Main features of the application 123D Design are described in the recent Budweiser blog posting. This application works in the web browser environment (recommended: Google Chrome) on any computer. Directly from the 3D modeler you can run the "FAB" module (menu: "CNC Utility"), where you can set parameters for your model, material and machining tools (mills). Then you can launch the CNC code generation and simulate the machining process visually. The HSMworks kernel is used internally for thise CAM functionality.

See the video:

This CAD/CAM application is a perfect tool for makers and hobbyists - it is quick, easy and free. For professional machining use a professional CAM tool like Inventor CAM or other CAM solutions for Inventor, PowerMill, etc..
