Thread: Thinking about new CAD / CAM
Thanks Geoff, I will have a play with Fusion360 for now and see how it goes.
Did a bit of Googling. Just ordered an ATI FirePro 4900 for £55. I'm sure it will run well enough for me.
Noctua fans are awesome.
Plonk a cpu cooler on your gpu. Like this --->
Perhaps a PC case build is in your future? ;)
Just had a look on the Fusion360 site - make sure you have a 64bit machine (32bit not supported):
Thanks for that, yes I am running Win7 64bit on a core2 quad.
Fusion 360 does run but seems to hang sometimes, I guess because of the graphics card.
Sketchup continues to freeze some times, one of the many reasons i went to real CAD. NX9 works flawlessly. So is not the PC or the card.
Make sure you have latest drivers of all and all updates installed. Maybe some little tweak of the program could avoid problems.
Fusion really seams interesting for the price of 20Euro per month after the first year. Though the CAM part should be investigated further, if there are not some serious limits there.

That's great, thanks! I am still doing the ones on the program and they sent me an email with more to follow.
