First off, happy holidays and a warm welcome to all the new Fusion 360 community participants.  There are more joining each week than ever before.  With all the new faces, and as we enter the New Year, it’s a great time to check in and review Fusion 360’s direction.

We continue to focus on solving three strategic problems…


Explore and iterate on product ideas quickly from concept to production


Enable project teams and stakeholders to collaborate effectively in the product development process


Reduce the barrier to entry for a new generation of designers and engineers


We hope you agree that we’ve made improvements on all of the above and more.  Just in the last weeks and months, significant improvements arrived in our ongoing updates.


Many of you are eager for an a look at what will be coming, so now is a great time to update our look ahead on projects we’re working on.  Some of these will be delivered in the coming weeks and months, some will take a little longer, but are well under way. This is not a comprehensive list, just highlights we know many are keen to see and hear more about.


Design and Modeling



A continual focus on drawings to round out the tool necessary to create fabrication drawings this includes but is not limited to :






Data Management / Collaboration


New ECAD Integration





Please remember this only a sampling of interesting projects. There is a lot more going on so don’t assume the worst if you see something missing. As always we will post a What’s New to the Design Differently blog with each update that includes more detail.


Roadmaps are plans, not promises. We’re as excited as you to see new functionality make it into the products, but the development, release, and timing of any features or functionality remains at our sole discretion.  These roadmaps should not be used to make purchasing decisions.
