G-code with Fusion 360 on small parts


Just new and happy with my Arcdroid. But I encounter problems when I wnat to design toolpaths in fusion 360 for small parts.
I’m desingning name tags, but the toolpath for the lettering stays empty.

Anybody tips?


That’s a quirk of Fusion it’s keep the text as FONT data rather than lines until you so something with it. Its why the test shows as a fuzzy blue area
So you can either Extrude the text into a solid that Fusion now recognizes as line geometry or Right click on the text and choose “Break Apart”

Thanks for the tip. I’ll try it comming weekend.
Could this also be a solution when parts of a .svg aren’t recognized? Or should I try an other format for shapes, like a dxf-file?

I have tried extrude and emboss, but only some letters get recognized.
If I right click I don’t have a command break apart.
Anything else I can try?


Please bear in mind I’m not the support line for Fusion 360
But if you right click on the text while in a sketch you get the “explode Text” option
This will break the font into line segments you can use when creating a toolpath


Got it. Thanks.:+1:
I’m going to browse YouTube for some Fusion tutorials :wink:
