Design

Overview

Conceptualize your various design interations in a single platform. The unified environment combines multiple modeling methods, giving you the flexibility to create high-quality products.

Sketching

Create and edit sketches with sketch constraints, dimensions, and a powerful suite of sketch tools. Control complex splines and curves with a robust analysis toolset.

As an industrial designer, this allows me to get the results that I seek... from sketch to a model ready for 3D printing.
- Ujwal IK

Freeform Modeling

Create complex sub-divisional surfaces with T-splines and increase the density of T-spline faces.

It would have taken an entire day, maybe 2, but with T-spline modeling, I was able to do it in minutes.
- Jason Pohl Senior Designer, Orange County Choppers

Surface Modeling

Create and edit complex parametric surfaces for repairing, patching or designing geometry.

It’s like a digital version of clay, except when you’re pushing it around, it doesn’t leave thumbprints.
- Jason Pohl Senior Designer, Orange County Choppers

Parametric Modeling

Create history-based features, including extrude, revolve, loft, sweep, etc., that update with design changes.

It really frees you up and you stop being timid. You just do it, because it’s all being captured right now.
- Gareth Conner Creative Conners

Mesh Modeling

Edit and repair imported scans or mesh models, including STL and OBJ files.

The best thing about Fusion 360 is you can integrate different modeling styles.
- Matt Johnson Industrial Designer, Coalesse

Direct Modeling

Edit or repair imported geometry from non-native file formats. Make design changes without worrying about time-based features.

Creating 3D objects from 2D sketches is very easy. The modify tools in Fusion 360 make it possible to change your models.
- Carson Bruess

PCB Design Integration

Synchronize bi-directional changes from your electronics designs seamlessly with Autodesk EAGLE interoperability.

I like the integration between Fusion 360 and EAGLE. It's the main reason I decided on EAGLE.
- Senior Electrical Engineer

 

3D Modeling

Overview

- Christian Welch Swissomation

Direct Modeling

Edit or repair imported geometry from non-native file formats. Make design changes without worrying about time-based features.

I love creating models with Fusion 360, it is very easy to sculpt, shape, and scale. Other programs make it very square and not exactly what I want.

- Ed Eaton Dimonte Group

Sheet Metal

Design sheet metal parts components, document flat patterns using 2D drawings and DXFs, and manufacture your design with cutting strategies for water jet, laser and plasma machines.

We could finally use a CAD program that didn't need hours of preparation before starting to design. You just sit and start creating.
- Luciana Montivero

Mesh Modeling

Edit and repair imported scans or mesh models, including STL and OBJ files.

My favorite features are user experience and speed. Design something and then build it in a day, whereas previously it might have taken a week.
- Adam Ellison Co-founder, Modbot

Assemblies

Assemble designs with a traditional bottom-up, middle-out, or top-down approach and analyze assembly motion.

You can just start modeling your ideas... large assemblies can be animated well.
- Consumer Goods Product Designer

Rapid Prototyping / Make

Overview

Quickly create your prototypes to validate your design prior to manufacturing. Reduce the impact of design changes, so you can produce your final product faster.

3D Printing

Build supports, preview slices, and generate toolpaths for a variety of 3D printers, and then send designs directly to your favorite 3D print utility.

Within 10 minutes, we see something in 3D and then send it to the 3D printer.
- Ian Redern Fabric

CAM

Your toolpaths update with every design change through our fully integrated manufacturing tools, making it quick and easy to machine prototypes.

This has allowed me to reduce the production time by nearly 80%.
- Consumer Product Company

Rendering

Create photo-realistic images of your model, leveraging local or cloud rendering.

It’s so easy to render, the team was able to create 15 variations of color and material in 15 minutes, not 120 minutes it would have taken before.
- Mike Kowalski Brownlie Design

- Kevin Quinn Director, General Motors

Export CAD-ready Files

Choose a generative design outcome to export and import the CAD-ready geometries into Fusion 360. The results can be edited with T-spline tools for any fine adjustments or aestheic requirements.

Things like generative design allow us to implement, execute, and manufacture in a completely different fashion than we're thinking today.
- Frank DeSantis VP, Black & Decker

Cloud Solve

Using cloud credits, simultaneously solve for various design outcomes, freeing up your time to focus on other tasks.

We don’t have to spend months & years guessing & simulating what we think the right solution is, we look at a whole range of solutions, telling us if our idea is feasible right from the beginning.
- Matt Otto R & D Engineer, Crown Equipment

 

Simulation

Overview

Test your designs to ensure they will survive real world conditions. Simulate your products digitally, reducing the cost of prototyping by using fully-validated solvers.

Cloud Simulation

Using cloud credits, setup and analyze multiple tests quickly while eliminating the need for expensive hardware.
