Exporting Faces in Fusion 360

Ok, so I’ve been LOVING this machine. I was up till 3 working on a laptop stand (with cupholder! lol) and when I woke up this morning to export them… I realized I have no idea what to do from here. I’ve been having a heck of a time exporting them to a vector. Any suggestions on what I’m doing wrong?

Here is the model http://a360.co/2AXH8Ik

(I tried the Shaper plugin without luck)


Try the DXF for Laser plugin.



All hail the queen of the lasers! (Thanks!)


I don’t know why the shaper plugin didn’t work. The one @Jules sugested works great as well and has kerf compensation as well if needed. It outputs a DXF so you’ll have to run it through Inkscape to make it a SVG.

If plugins in general are giving you a hard time you can always directly export a DXF from a sketch.


They both work fine for me too. Maybe it was just a bad install. :slightly_smiling_face:

There’s actually a glowforge F360 plugin if I recall that @garin_gardiner told me about!

We have a link to it in the Matrix. (I wasn’t sure if it was ever completed though, he was working on it before the release of the machines.) :slightly_smiling_face:

We have an add-in to Fusion 360 for the Shaper tool that can export sketches and faces out as SVGs. It’s a pretty good way to get SVGs out of Fusion 360 easily. Here is the link if you want to try it out.



Is that the Shaper Utilities? (We have that one linked as well. Works very well.) :grinning:
(Guess I could have just followed the link to find out. Chuckle!)

For those it will install for. :persevere:
