3D CAD/CAM tool for product development.

What is Fusion 360 for Mac

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 2.0.9719:
Usability:
  • We fixed an issue where Fusion 360 inexplicably crashed on startup after changing the language setting to German. Das tut mir leid!
  • If you belong to multiple team hubs with a large amount of projects and were switching between them, there was an elusive issue that caused Fusion 360 to crash if you were switching between them multiple times. We dug into this and have resolved the issue.
  • LarsFi and a few other folks reported on the forum that they came across an issue where Fusion 360 told them that they no longer had permission to save their own documents. Apparently Fusion 360 got confused didn’t allow them to save due to the permissions warning. Sorry about that – this is now fixed.
  • Some Fusion Team Error messages that appeared in the new Notification Center had some wonky text formatting where URLs and spaces were missing. Now these messages are formatted correctly.
  • Another case of the disappearing weblinks was found in the Job Status > Action column. Turns out that the results of completed Simulation studies lost their links to the web viewer. Now Results are clickable again.
Graphics:
  • We fixed an issue related to DirectX 9 where Fusion 360 became unresponsive if you had put your computer to sleep (or locking the screen) and came back to it after you woke up your machine. Looks like Fusion 360 was trying to snooze just a bit longer, and we weren’t having it. Now if you went back to it after waking your machine, it should work without issues.
  • In the previous version, the IsoCurve Analysis tool was missing its command icon in the toolbar on macOS machines and had some wonky UI formatting in the command dialog as well as the analysis appearing in the wrong place (away from the actual model). These issues are now all fixed.
Electronics:
  • The Reset Grid options for Electronics in your Preferences was confusing some of you. We realized that the options should say “Reset Grid to Default when…” instead of “Reset Grid to Default on…”. Now it reads better.
  • rbeyerCLBSZ reported to us that the Meander tool doesn’t show trace length for any traces. As we dug into this, we also noticed that the meander result did always follow up with the mouse cursor, and sometimes got lost if you moved the mouse for a while in the 2D PCB editor. We’re happy to report that this is now fixed.
  • sn2010 told us that the Label dialog was not showing up when he activated the Label command on his 2D schematic. Sorry about that – this is now fixed.
Manufacture:
  • When you tried to post to a specific destination on your computer, the “Select output folder” dialog won’t pop up when post processing with a cache post. Also, this skipped the file over-write warning and directly overwrote the file with the same name. That’s pretty annoying; this is now fixed.
  • We fixed another post processing issue where Post processing from NC program did not include the machine information to the output code, even though the machine is selected in the setup being posted.
  • We noticed an issue where Fusion 360 will occasionally become unstable when you switch from the Design workspace to the Manufacture workspace after you deleted a component in the Design workspace. Now Fusion 360 will no longer crash when you switch from one workspace to the other after deleting components.
  • We fixed a crash issue stemmed from a certain “simulation-ready” machine design being imported into the Fusion 360 machine library and used in a setup.
  • When you associated a named view to an operation, you should also be able to remove that association by right-clicking on the operation and selecting Associate Named View > Remove Association. We ran into some issues with this workflow, but now it should work fine.
  • Fusion 360 crashed when you selected either the Yes or No button in the “Proceed” warning messaging after you changed the value of the max extruder option and decided to cancel the change. We’ve resolved this issue and now Fusion 360 will no longer crash.
  • There were UI inconsistencies in the FFF print settings dialog where the direction of the menu expand arrow was incorrect, and the extruder parameter names were greyed out for some weird reason. This is now fixed.
  • If you created a setup, selected a machine in the Machine library, re-opened the setup dialog, deleted the selected machine but canceled the action, Fusion 360 got confused and went ahead to remove the machine as if you selected OK. Now the selected machine will remain selected if you canceled the action as it should.
  • We noticed a few of you have been experiencing crashes when working with FFF setups, activating a FFF setup, clicking on the SLM setup, and then clicking on the FFF infill command. A error message will pop-up, and when closing it, Fusion 360 would crash. Sorry about that; this is now fixed.
  • If you didn’t have the Post Process with NC Program Preview, opened a NC Post configuration dialog and selected either “Turning” or “Mill/turn” option the Capabilities drop-down menu, Fusion 360 didn’t know how to handle itself and got all hung up. This is now fixed.
  • There was a copy-and-paste error where if you tried to copy a machine from one of you setups in the machine library document folder and then pasted it into another local/cloud folder, a “Cannot save machine file, file already exists” error message popped up. A pesky bug was preventing the copy-and-paste to happen correctly, so we squashed it and now it works fine.
API:
  • rolandas.vegis told us that the Extrude NegativeExtentDirection API stopped working. This is now fixed and should work as expected again.

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.
