Tip Tuesday – Fusion 360 In-depth: Using Autodesk 360
So you’ve heard the term Autodesk 360 and now are curious about the details. In this post, I’ll show you some of the tools available in Autodesk 360 that help manage Fusion designs and related information. For this post, I’m using an internet browser to access my data. Everything demonstrated in this post is also possible in Fusion 360.
To start, fire up an internet browser then navigate to myhub.autodesk360.com and log in using your Autodesk ID. The Autodesk 360 dashboard provides access to all data and activity related to your projects.
The Activity feed lists items taken by anyone on projects that you are part of. The Recent feed lists actions that only you have taken. Click a tile in the feed to display that object.
When you click a Fusion object, the viewer is displayed. The viewer provides common viewing tasks such as pan, zoom, and rotate. This allows you to view 3D models without having Fusion 360 installed. Use messages to collaborate with other designers that have access to the design.
Use the tabs on the left to access more information for the design. Each design has four renderings. Modify the default settings to create additional renderings in the cloud. Review and manage versions of a design. Select a version in the list to display the design in the viewer. The last tab display a list of related items such as drawings or toolpaths.
Click the Versions tab to review all the versions of the current design. The current version is listed at the top. Select a version to display that version in the viewer. Any version can be exported and then downloaded to your local machine. You can also promote a version to be the current version of the design.
Use the search field in the upper right to search data and designs. The search looks for matching names and also looks at components contained in an assembly. In the image below, I searched “light bulb”. The first result is a design with the same name. The lamp designs are also listed because they contain a component called “light bulb”.
Finally, use the tools presented in the tile to collaborate on the design. You can invite others to collaborate on the project, export the design, and add tags.
