    This session will be a look at the inner workings of Fusion 360 software from 2 of the people who helped build it. Jeff Strater (developer, architect), and Phil Eichmiller (quality engineer, tester) will demonstrate and discuss the core principles and technology at the core of Fusion 360 software’s modeling, sketch, and assembly compute engines. Focusing on performance and stability, this is a class for CAD aficionados interested in a deep understanding of the inner workings of Fusion 360 and how those are best used in modeling and assembly workflows. We'll show you how Fusion 360 is best used for productivity, and for top-down, bottom-up, and streamlined product design workflows.

    Key Learnings

    • Understand how Fusion 360 uses Compute and how to capitalize on it in your designs for productivity
    • Learn how linked designs function and how to best take advantage of them in any assembly
    • See nonparametric workflows that increase performance and aid rapid design iteration and exploration
    • Learn how to increase sketch performance after learning how the sketch solver works
