Why Autodesk Fusion?

Autodesk Fusion is a professional, full-scale integrated 3D modeling cloud-based CAD/CAM/CAE/PCB platform that lets you design and make anything. Some of the key Fusion benefits for educators include:

  • Review and manage student assignments. Fusion datasets can be shared with a web link and then viewed on any device. You can easily add markup, slice the model, add notations, and provide other feedback.
  • Student teams collaboration. Fusion's collaboration features make easier for students to work on the same project – when a new version of a dataset is uploaded, it is immediately available to everyone collaborating on the project. 
  • Get to machining faster. Get students to produce high-quality CNC machined parts, and additively manufacture builds with a wide range of integrated CNC and 3D printers ready to simulate, test and prototype designs.

Fusion is free for eligible educators and students. Available on Mac, PC, and Chromebook.
