EMS CNC Utilization

For any faculty, grad, undergrad, or clubs seeking CNC work, be advised the shop is now utilizing Autodesk’s Fusion 360 CADCAM software.

This software is available for all to download via UB’s software site.

Interested parties should use the link in the EMS BOX folder to download and import the EMS tool library so as to minimize tool choice conflicts.
