FANUC America has developed a machining simulator that encompasses the complete manufacturing process from part design and engineering to CNC programming to virtual production simulation. The machining simulator features Autodesk Fusion 360 CAD/CAM/CAE software and a custom machining simulation program designed by ModuleWorks. 

Students can use Fusion 360 to perform CAD/CAM work and the included postprocessors will convert the designs into G-code suitable for the included CNC. The machining simulation component was developed in partnership with ModuleWorks and allows users to virtually manufacture parts in milling or turning environments with realistic kinematics and structure. Real-time collision detection uses visual and audio signals to notify users of collisions.
