OMAX and Autodesk have worked together to ensure great compatibility between Fusion 360 and the ProtoMAX software. You can see a video of it in action on one of OMAX's larger machines on YouTube here.

Fusion 360 can output DXF files that are compatible with LAYOUT (the CAD system that comes with ProtoMAX), but can also output .OMX tool path files that can be directly sent to the machine and run in the controller (MAKE), skipping the need to use LAYOUT completely.

To find Post Processors for Fusion 360, visit this web page: Autodesk Fusion 360 Post Processor Page, and enter in the search term "OMAX", or "ProtoMAX". Note that there may be more than one post processor, choose the ProtoMAX one, if it is available, or the one that most closely matches whatever machine you have.

Here is another nice video of someone using Fusion 360 to program their ProtoMAX from a sketch to a part, previewing, then cutting:
