I was doing it from the perspective that I would be downloading it from the previous videos project files. Then saving it so it’d be part of your accessible cloud documents.
I did already have it saved from video 2 and I could have opened it instead.
If I used the sketch from sketch one (our original sketch) make the *.DXF it would not have had the radius corners(fillet tool) that we made after we turned it into a body (extruded the sketch) . It also would have projected all the construction lines as sketch lines in the *.DXF.
As a good exercise could you save sketch one as a *.DXF, inserted it and capture an image of the DXF of sketch one and post it below. It will be a good visual for the description above. And great practice
The *.F3D contains all the data of a fusion file.
Sketch one, sketch 2, the bodies, all the manufacturing data, all the history , all the changes you made to that file. that’s why it’s such a great media to share.
@TinWhisperer These are great videos, thanks for taking the time to make them.
When i get to the cut path i chose the cut path but it did not cut the 4 holes, so i went back and let fusion chose the cut path still did not cut the 4 holes. I included the f3d file. I have no idea why this happened. I watched the video a few times but can not figure it out.
I also have a question and included a pic about this browser when i get to this point and have made some mistakes, edits and what ever else i did, what does all this now mean. And do i need to delete the setups that have the mistakes since i’m not going to use that one? I hope this makes sense?

You tripped me up on the ‘print’ step near the end. I was looking for the ‘three dots’…
It was only after I went down several rabbit holes that I realized that your export PDF brought you to Microsoft Edge and THAT is where the three dots exist. I don’t use Edge, but that’s ok, but you need to tell us about the context switch…
On my freshly installed Windows 10 I have FireFox and Fusion 360…
I did install Adobe Reader (after unchecking the damn EXTRA CRAP they want to force on you). So I have a sufficiently working platform to test this fusion thing. I did not have a rousing success on the print operation, however. The scale was not exactly 1:1, but there are many reasons for this and, at this point, it’s not a major concern of mine. I might install SheetCam to verify the output files, but that’s a few videos down the road I think.
