Welcome to the Fusion 360 Community Spotlight, a series where we highlight fantastic projects, conversations, and events happening throughout the global Fusion 360 community. Let’s get started!

Social media

From diving into the new Fusion 360 Apple Silicon integration to reverse engineering using the Fusion 360 “Calibrate” trick, to teaching others valuable skills, we always love seeing what you have been up to on social media. Here are some of our favorite recent posts:

Dr. Schwenke 3D prints artery models and the vascular system to visualize complex brain aneurysms

It can be difficult for surgeons to practice the intricacies of any surgery, especially when it comes to the brain. Dr. Hannes Schwenke of the University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein in Lübeckcon, Germany is pioneering an entirely new way to understand brain aneurysms by 3D printing artery models.

By using a combination of Autodesk Fusion 360, Autodesk Netfabb, and Formlabs 3D printers, Dr. Schwenke was able to replicate the entire human vascular anatomy, particularly the pathway that is typically followed with an angiogram during cerebral artery surgery. The models help train surgeons, provide better treatment, and even eliminate the need for animal testing during practice procedures.
