How to buy
Explore more ideas with one workflow that utilises manufacturing process-aware artificial intelligence (AI) to expand design options well beyond human imagination quickly, without the need to model and validate each individually.
Increase product design confidence by meeting performance criteria through the automated application of considerations such as lightweighting, improved structural integrity and continued durability.
Unearth options for part consolidation, material reduction, sustainable designs and manufacturing cost comparisons to weigh commercial production costs against design decisions.
Explore multiple outcomes that meet your design specifications while reducing weight and improving performance.
Manufacturing methods and constraints
Generate manufacturing-ready designs with your requirements, constraints, materials and manufacturing options.
Machine learning and AI
Consider cloud-generated designs based on visual similarities, plots and filters powered by machine learning.
Native, editable results
Avoid long, manual import-export processes. Pick your outcome and start editing in your modelling environment.
Simultaneously solve for various design outcomes, freeing up your time to focus on other tasks.
Estimate manufacturing costs, powered by aPriori, for each generated design based on production requirements.

In just minutes, the Generative Design Extension in Fusion 360 provides many different possible workholding fixtures for 5-axis machining. These are more than strong enough to hold the billet firmly in place and maintain tolerances.
The Autodesk Fusion 360 Generative Design Extension lets you use the full breadth of automation and machine intelligence to generate outcomes you didn't know were feasible.
A subscription to the Fusion 360 Generative Design Extension is required in addition to an active subscription to Fusion 360. Generative Design Extension subscriptions are available both monthly and yearly.
A 14-day free trial is available for the Machining Extension, Product Design Extension, Simulation Extension, Nesting & Fabrication Extension, Additive Build Extension and Generative Design Extension. Click here to download a free trial.
Generative design leverages artificial intelligence and machine learning to generate multiple manufacturing outcomes that meet your design constraints while reducing weight, improving performance and consolidating parts.
Topology optimisation begins with a human-designed CAD model concept with loads and constraints applied based on the design constraints. Topology optimisation returns only one optimised concept for evaluation based on the human-designed model. There is no automated ideation. Lastly, it returns to the user an optimised mesh design result that must be rebuilt in a CAD system that is intended for downstream use.
Autodesk Fusion 360 Generative Design Extension begins with hold-out areas, preserved areas, loads and design constraints based on the project requirements.
Artificial intelligence generates the topological outcomes that are created for evaluation based design and manufacturing requirements. The Generative Design Extension in Fusion 360 returns to the user a CAD ready geometry model that can be edited in any system.
