The familiarization with the CNC technique is mostly due to the teacher’s own initiative. Up to now, it consisted of a time-consuming research of the subjects CAD, CAM and CNC and was followed by the selection and learning of the required software as well the choice of a suitable CNC machine. This should not only qualify for classroom usage but should at best also offer a multitude of possible applications.

With The CAD, CAM & CNC Workbook, Fusion 360TM from Autodesk and the multifunction STEPCRAFT CNC Systems, STEPCRAFT provides an overall concept from the idea to its realization. Thus, it is not only cost-efficient but reduces the invest of time to a minimum as well.

Autodesk fusion

Autodesk is one of the global leaders in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software and cooperation partner of STEPCRAFT. Companies in the fields of mechanical engineering, architecture and construction as well as media and entertainment use Autodesk solutions to create, visualize and simulate their ideas.

With Fusion 360TM, Autodesk addresses hobbyists, makers, start-up companies, educational institutions and students for whom the company offers this software free of charge. A powerful CAD/ CAM software is virtually indispensable when designing and adjusting 2D and 3D constructions that shall be produced subsequently. For this purpose, CAM functions have been customized and optimized especially for STEPCRAFT CNC Systems. Additionally, Autodesk not only offers free webinars and tutorials but has a huge online community as well. With Fusion 360TM, Autodesk provides the first 3D CAD / CAM tool encompassing the entire process of product development in a cloud-based solution.


The CAD, CAM & CNC Workbook is a modularly structured textbook addressing the self-educated and teachers for the lower and upper secondary level of education. It contains all basics necessary for computer-aided construction and manufacturing. Starting with the emergence and importance of the CNC technique to basic knowledge regarding the functioning of CAD, CAM and machine control software to the in detail introduction to corresponding programs, The CAD, CAM & CNC Workbook describes and explains the entire way from the idea to the manufactured workpiece.

Due to tangible feelings of success, the integrated practical and project examples, including the respective solution files, ensure a lasting learning effect. Additionally, pre-formulated questions can be found in the comprehension section at the end of each module. Beyond that, The CAD, CAM & CNC Workbook is designed in a modern and attractive way in order to further support the learning process.
