3D CAD/CAM tool for product development.

Overview

Fusion 360 is a modern 3D CAD/CAM tool for product development. With Fusion 360 you have one integrated tool to take your idea from concept to manufacture. With built-in collaboration you can work with anyone, anywhere and because it’s cloud based you can access your designs anywhere, on any device.

Features:
Iterate Designs, Explore Forms
  • Surface Modeling - Explore ideas and create organic shapes with T-Splines push-pull commands.
  • Solid Modeling - Direct and history based modeling are seamlessly integrated.
  • Parametric Modeling - Make changes that automatically update corresponding values and functions of the design.
  • Mesh Modeling - Import OBJ or STL bodies as mesh models to create custom designs conforming to mesh surfaces.
Engineer Designs, Explore Function
  • Data Translation - Import and export design files with unlimited CAD translation of over 50 file types.
  • Assembly Modeling - Assemble components and show how they work in relation to one other.
  • Joints & Motion Studies - Create relationships, simulate motion, and review the fit and function of designs.
  • Rendering - Visualize designs with a variety of rendering tools, environments, effects, and visual styles.
  • Animations - Communicate design concepts with 3D exploded views and animations to show how a model is built or functions.
Fabricate Designs
  • 2.5 Axis & 3 Axis Machining - Prepare designs for machining with integrated CAM for 2D and 3D milling.
  • 3D Printing - Set up designs for 3D printing within Fusion 360.
  • Drawings - Document designs with associative 2D drawings - any changes made to the model will be automatically updated.
Collaborate & Manage Designs
  • Collaboration & Sharing - Collaborate within Fusion 360 by tracking and commenting on project progress, or share project components with other team members.
  • Version Management - Store and manage all design data in one place with auto-save or manual version control.
  • Mobile Viewing & Management - Access designs on the go with the free Autodesk A360 app or in a web browser.
  • Share or Publish Data & Designs - Share designs with the community or with individuals with secure public sharing links.
Other Features
  • Enhanced Support - Get help with prioritized form responses, email, and extended phone support hours with an Autodesk support agent.
  • API Extensibility - Create custom JavaScript’s or use sample scripts for bolt generation, spur gear generation, and simple built of materials extractor.
  • Form Inspection & Analysis - Validate a model with curvature comb analysis, zebra analysis, draft analysis, curvature mapping, interference checking, assembly motion studies and more.

The price quoted is that of a standard annual subscription. Monthly subscriptions are also available.

What's new in Fusion 360

Version 2.0.8950:

Full release notes are available here

Sketching & Modeling
  • New! T-Spline Cylindrify command for Form Struts - Design workspace > Solid Tab > Create Form > Modify Panel > Cylindrify
  • Now in the Modify drop-down menu in the Form contextual environment, you’ll find the new Cylindrify command. It forms uneven T-Spline geometry into a smooth cylindrical shape. This is especially useful to smooth uneven struts or holes from generative design results
New! IGA Export
  • Right-click on a T-Spline body > Save T-Spine as IGA
  • You can now export T-Spline bodies to the IGA file format. IGA stands for isogeometric analysis. IGA technology allows FEA (finite element analysis) to be performed directly on certain types of models. This open format allows third party applications to perform analysis directly on data exported from Fusion 360
Improved! As-Built Joint Modes
  • Design workspace > Solid Tab > Assemble > As-built Joint
  • Now when you use the As-Built Joint command to join two components together, you’ll notice that we’ve also added modes like Joint Origin, Between Two Faces, as well as Two Edge Intersection, just like what you’ll find in the regular Joint command. Now you can easily choose which mode you want to use, making it more discoverable and easier to learn
  • We have also improved the previewing experience of ‘Two Edge Intersection’ mode in Joint, Joint Origin and As Built Joint commands. We now show the JO preview when mouse hover over the second edge
  • In addition to these As-Built Joint improvements and Two Edge Intersection previewing experience, we’ve also cleaned up a number of areas in the Joints experience. This includes the joint origin re-orient behaviors, preview compute issues in Joint, fixed buggy code that could lead to corrupted Joint origin, fixed the orientation inconsistencies seen between joints created through API and UI, consistent error messaging between parametric and direct modeling, better visual clue on the X, Y, Z offset values shown on its manipulator drag, better selection experience to know the participating faces/edges in Between Two faces and Two Edge Intersection ,as well as contextual disclosure of options in the command dialog, instead of showing everything at once
Improved! Mirror Command now has Join and Stitch
  • Design workspace > Solid Tab > Create Panel > Mirror
  • Now when you use the Mirror command, Join for Solid bodies and Stitch for Surface bodies are now available as options to use in the Operation drop-down menu. This should help reduce extra steps in your modeling workflow
Improved! Edge Alignment Options in Extend Command
  • Design workspace > Surface Tab > Modify Panel > Extend
  • The Surface > Extend command now has a new Edge Alignment option that lets you select between Free Edges or Align Edges. Free Edges will behave as before, where the edges of that surface will extend in the direction of the manipulator, whereas Align Edges will align the edges in direction the edges are going
Customer Issues Fixed:
  • Gardenweazel noticed that the designs shown in the File > Open dialog were incorrectly sorted by numerical order rather by the actual last updated date. Now it should sort properly
  • Seabreezecoffee found a rendering bug where one of his model bodies disappeared unexpectedly regardless of the viewing angle or camera settings. Sorry about that – we got this sorted
  • skylord73 told us about a bug that was causing the timeline to lose the scrollbar when you jump to the very end. For some weird reason the last action becomes the first displayed in the timeline and there was no way to see the previous actions since the scrollbar was lost. Sorry about that, this is now fixed

Well, basically a good software and it's free for hobbyists. But looking at my network traffic, it's amazing how much data is being collected under the hood. There's no obvious reason for that.
