Fusion 360 for mechanical engineers

Connect your mechanical engineering processes 

Create 3D models, engineer, simulate and manufacture all on one platform. 

Work with the best mechanical engineering platform for engineers

100x 

Investigate upwards of 100 3D design iterations in the amount of time it would traditionally take to complete one.


5x 

Design, engineer and manufacture a product in one day instead of an entire business week.


75%

Reduce your mechanical engineering time by 75% when compared to traditional 3D design methods.


Push the limit with 3D modelling

Engineer your products with a complete set of 3D modelling and design tools that include parametric, freeform, direct and surface modelling.

Solve mechanical engineering challenges faster

Simultaneously generate multiple options of your 3D design while consolidating parts, reducing weight and improving overall product performance.

Avoid overpriced simulation software

Test your designs to ensure that they will survive real world conditions using one model, in one affordable software solution.

Features

Fusion 360 features for mechanical engineers

3D design and modelling

Engineer products with comprehensive 3D modelling and analysis tools. Ensure products’ form, fit and function.


Sketching

Create and edit sketches with sketch constraints, dimensions and a powerful suite of sketch tools.


Direct modelling

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


Surface modelling

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


Parametric modelling

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


Mesh modelling

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