Autodesk Fusion for education

Bring next-generation workflows into your courses with an intuitive, modern 3D modeling, CAD, CAM, CAE, and PCB software platform that’s easy to learn and teach.

Free for education. Available on PC, Mac, and Chromebook.

What is 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 Autodesk Fusion benefits for educators include:

  • Review and manage student assignments. Autodesk 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.

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