Part of our planning is talking with you and others like you every day. We are designers, manufacturers and makers ourselves. As we learn what you like, don’t like and need from Fusion 360 it helps us to be focused on the three pervasive problems we are trying to solve.

 

Explore and iterate on product ideas quickly from concept to production

Explore aesthetically pleasing designs faster

Avoid loss of digital data from concept to production

Integrate concept, mechanical and electro-mechanical

 

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

Assemble and manage virtual project teams without overhead

Easily manage, access and share data from anywhere, anytime

 

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

Reduce cognitive overload and learning curve

Support for Mac

Approachable

 

These help guide us as we work through the IdeaStation and all the other sources of great ideas for Fusion 360.  Here are the details on what is coming. (Jump to see a list of previous updates)

 

July 25, 2015

We are focusing on fabrication workflows.

Other improvements:

 

September 2015

The focus is strength testing and simulation. http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/fusion-360-product-roadmap/simulation-for-fusion-360/ba-p/5518849

Other improvements include…

November 2015

 

We are planning on a November update as well but are still working thru the details.  Will update the blog once we have it.  UPDATE – November blog post here

 

January 2016

Focus on design branching for CAD! This allows branch and merge of your designs and projects. It will enable design variations and even better multi-user editing workflows. Details: http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/fusion-360-product-roadmap/the-future-of-collaboration-in-fus…

 

This roadmap is not complete. With each update we learn more from you and adjust our plans by adding or updating projects. Obviously some of this will change but with the interest in roadmap we knew people would enjoy seeing what’s coming.  There are many incremental improvements that will come along the way as these are completed they will be delivered so the above list is not complete. Its just meant to highlight focus for each update. Let us know what you think.

 

In addition to the capabilities above we have several big projects underway which don’t fit nicely in one update cycle so their exact timing is still work in progress.

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.
