Description

By writing programs using Fusion 360 software’s Application Programming Interface (API), you can customize Fusion 360 software to more efficiently accomplish the tasks you need it to do. You can also create new applications that can be provided to Fusion 360 software users through the Autodesk Exchange Store. This class will begin with the basics by looking at how you can write a program in either JavaScript API or Python software, but then will focus on using Python by looking at the basic syntax and statements you’ll need in most programs and discovering how to debug your Python programs. The class then will dive into Fusion 360 software’s programming interface where its core principles are described and demonstrated. Finally, we’ll discuss the more advanced topic of creating custom commands.

Key Learnings

  • Learn how to create Fusion 360 programs using Python
  • Discover the core principles of the Fusion 360 API
  • Learn how to use the documentation to understand the Fusion 360 object model
  • Learn how to create custom Fusion commands

Brian Ekins began working in the CAD industry in the early 1980s, and he has worked in various positions, including CAD administrator, applications engineer, instructor, CAD API (application programming interface) designer, and consultant. As an applications engineer, he specialized in modeling complex forms (boat hulls, jewelry, shoes, and so on) and customizing the software to fit customer requirements better. He moved into API design, where he designed the programming interface for Solid Edge software, and he has worked for Autodesk, Inc., since 1998, where he is the designer of the programming interface for Inventor software and is now focusing on Fusion 360 software. Ekins also uses the software and writes programs to design and build furniture at home.
