Many ChinaCNCzone mini CNC router users like to ask us about G-code design, actually, as a leading China CNC router manufacturer, we mainly produce machines such as CNC 6090, CNC 6040, CNC 3040 and HY 6040 series, about the G-code design, we received many feedback from our customers and many clients prefer ArtCAM to do G-code, and we share their experience as below:
Autodesk Fusion 360
We have a client who has some experiences in designing G code.
He designs G code with MeshCAM, he thinks MeshCAM is good, but Autodesk Fusion 360 is better, he also uses SolidCAM,but someone prefer Autodesk Fusion 360 as it's free.
Meshcam is very simple and easy to use but don't have many features,
fusion 360 is more complicated but have a lot of features (one of the best features is simulate, this option simulate the CNC movement)
ArtCAM have more features than MeshCAM but less than Autodesk Fusion 360, ArtCAM is designed for woodworking mainly, MeshCAM and Autodesk Fusion 360 can design G codes for all materials.
Hope above is helpful for you, if you have more to share, please kindly contact us.
