    I went here http://winder.github.io/ugs_website/d... to download the nightly build 2.0 of Universal G-code sender, I have Fusion 360 installed already and have been playing with it and trying to learn it. I watched Patrick Rainsberry youtube Universal Gcode Sender Plugin for Fusion 360 and just noticed that I forgot this plug-in, get the Plugin here: GitHub - tapnair/UGS_Fusion: Fusion 360 Universal Gcode Sender Plugin. Can someone tell me what folder I am suppose to install everything it in? And do I just extract it? The 2.0 nightly build is already installed but couldn't figure out the rest.

    Hi did you get any further with this? I've spent all afternoon trying to get the addin to appear in fusion 360 with no joy.

    I keep getting an error message on fusion 360 start up. From what I can make out it's looking for a resource it can't find. I can't work out what files need to be where though.

    Any help gratefully received I'm sure it's something simple I'm missing...

    OK so I've worked out how to do it... thanks for the tough love guys it worked.

    When you download the zip file from Git Hub extract it to the Users/blah blah blah/Autodesk/Autodesk fusion 360/Api/Addin folder then, keeping everything the same. and in the same relationship to each other just rename the folder that is called "UGS_Fusion-master" as "UGS_Fusion" just knock the -master from the folder name and robert should be your mother's brother.
