Check out these Autodesk University 2023 courses that focus on the new configurations feature in Autodesk Fusion.

Autodesk University 2023 is right around the corner, happening November 13-15 in Las Vegas, Nevada. You know what that means: it’s time to start packing your schedule with Fusion classes and special events.

Since its inception 10 years ago (that’s right, it’s a big year for us!), Autodesk Fusion has been committed to delivering the best cloud product development solution on the market. Did you know that over the past three years alone, Autodesk Fusion has delivered over 103 product updates and 652 new features and enhancements?  

One of the most exciting new features to release in 2023 was configurations. Configurations in Autodesk Fusion provide an intelligent way to maximize the utility of your parametric designs. They enable you to create and manage multiple design variations from a single, unified model. The tool offers a streamlined approach to design optimization, risk mitigation, and cost efficiency.

There are a few events happening at Autodesk University 2023 focused on getting you acquainted with configurations. Explore the list below to find the right one for your needs.

Configure This: Transform Your Design to Make Workflow with Autodesk Fusion

Take a grand tour of the new configurations capabilities in Autodesk Fusion with members of the configurations team. Learn how configurations can help you save by reusing shared logic and tracking differences in key parameters for individual components or full assemblies. See how to extend beyond design to leverage configurations in the Drawing, Render, Animation, Simulation, Generative Design, and Manufacture workspaces without leaving Fusion.
