Can anyone recomend reading material,for absolute beginners,in Fusion 360.
Autodesk.com has a fairly dry syllabus that gives all the nuts and bolts for Fusion 360. If you're a more hands-on type, the academy.titansofcnc.com site has a follow-along video series that takes you through the basics. Don't knock it 'til you've tried it! Good luck!
Like Jason said, Autodesk has an excellent resource library to get started from the very basic.
Navigate here and find out what you are looking for.
On YouTube check out Lars Christensen. His "Absolute Beginner" series is a great jumping off point.
He covers nearly everything.
If you’re looking for more of a machining/manufacturing tutorial, John Saunders and Titan Gilroy both have some very informative videos.
