Product Design & Manufacturing Collection subscribers get Fusion 360
Fusion 360 is a comprehensive product development platform, built on the cloud. We started with a clear goal in mind with Fusion 360 - to move beyond the traditional categories of CAD, CAM, simulation, and data management to a single collaborative tool that does it all. As an Autodesk Product Design & Manufacturing Collection subscriber, you automatically have access to it.
Why should I try Fusion 360?
Need to connect your design to the manufacturing process? Fusion 360 is unique in the industry because it goes beyond basic modeling. It includes CAM functionality that allows you to machine your designs, visualize toolpaths and output g-code. (video: 2:49 min.)
Starting a new project with remote teams? Data management and collaboration are included in Fusion 360, allowing you to work together with distributed teams from any location. You can manage, view, manipulate and comment on designs. (video: 2:50 min.)
Mac or PC
Using a Mac, PC or both? The days of using workarounds like Parallels, Boot Camp or VMWare, just so you can work on your Mac, are over. Fusion 360 works on any operating system, on any device. (video: 1:58 min.)
Seamless design and engineering
Have to make your product stand-out among the competition? If you use two separate products - one for styling, the other for engineering - you'll face numerous problems in the transfer of data. And, you'll risk losing design intent that’s core to your competitive differentiation. Fusion 360 seamlessly combines freeform surfaces with detailed engineering in one single platform.

Simulation and testing
Want to validate your design to prevent failure? Fusion 360 includes assembly FEA - a core part of the design platform. Optimize your design’s ability to withstand loading conditions and thermal stress. Explore multiple design iterations quickly. (video: 4:54 min.)
