Fusion 360 is natively designed for both Mac and PC, giving you the choice of working with your preferred OS.
Autodesk Fusion 360 is a comprehensive product design tool. Rapidly iterating your designs to arrive at the best design concepts. Then, move into production engineering by easily utilising your conceptual design. Finally, prepare your design for manufacture by utilising the integrated 2 and 3 axis CAM or the 3D printing utilities. All in a single tool without switching programs.
Bring together design and. Do more with your design data by creating complex surfaces that can actually be machined and are consumable downstream in the engineering and manufacturing process.
With a flexible modelling environment, you can choose how you design. Fusion 360 includes flexible real time direct modelling as well as feature based parametric modelling. You decide what environment makes sense at that point of the product process. Fusion 360 includes: polygonal Sub-D modelling, T-Splines modelling, NURBS surface modelling, Bezier curve surface modelling, CSG Primitives modelling.
Import and export design data with a comprehensive set of CAD data translators. Fusion supports translation of over 50 different file types including .OBJ, .DXF, .DWG,.SLDPRT and PDF to name a few. Accurate design translation and issues communicating with partners, suppliers or customers is a thing of the past—it just works!
Fusion 360 takes care of data management and version control. Manage projects from one central dashboard allowing you to add CAD data as well as other necessary data like PDF’s, documents, images and about anything else you will need for your project. Fusion 360 will automatically create and manage versions allowing you to review or roll back to an earlier state. Easily find components embedded in complex designs and simplify design re-use with the integrated search engine. All of this without expensive implementation and maintenance cost.
Work by yourself or with others from one central project dashboard. Maintain control of who has access to view, comment, and edit on projects. Make design reviews a snap with the ability to view project data through a web browser allowing collaborators to participate even if they don’t have Fusion 360. Access projects from your mobile device to view designs, review with your team and post comments.
Prepare your designs for machining with the integrated CAM tools like 2.5 and 3 axis machining or the 3D printing capabilities.
Communicate design intent internally, to customers or create photo realistic marketing materials directly from your model. Fusion 360 takes the heavy lifting of rendering off your machine by prerendering your designs in the cloud, so they can be viewed on your A360 dashboard and shared any time. If you want more granular control of your rendering, you can dynamically adjust environments, depth of field, effects, ray tracing settings, and visual styles directly within Fusion 360 with simple drag-and-drop functionality, then rendering it locally.
Fusion 360 is a comprehensive full-service engineering and manufacturing solution.
Please note that some of the tools listed and described above may are only available in Fusion 360 Ultimate. Please review the feature comparison tool for the version that best suites your requirements.
