Fusion 360 Machining of a '62 Stratocaster

Here is a short video of my CNC machine cutting out the neck, fretboard, and body of a ’62 strat I am in the process of building.  As can been seen, the entire guitar was modeled in Fusion 360, and then the machine tool paths were also created in Fusion 360.  The G-code was then exported into Mach3, and the CNC machine did the rest.  Please let me know if I can answer any questions.

I used one of my all-time favorite songs as the background to this video, and I hope you enjoy it, especially in these crazy times we are all living in now.

    On your Fusion 360 archtop dvds, as a hobbyist, what level would I need to get in order to draw out a guitar? Student level, hobbyist, etc.?
    I’m getting ready to order a Onefinity cnc machine.
    Thanks for your time

      Hi Loube,
      Not 100% sure of your question. The Free version of Fusion 360 is all you need, and you will be able to draw this.

        Thanks. The Fusion 360 archtop instruction is available as a dvd? I don’t have internet at home, only here at work.

    do you have video cutting scarf joint guitar (angle neck guitar) in fusion 360 with bounding box just like in solidworks and mastercam ?

      Honestly I do not. I tried Fusion 360 CAM, and did my latest stratocaster build on it, but Mastercam has ruined me for life, and I am never using anything else. F360 CAM is light years behind mastercam….(Obviously my opinion only..)
