July 27, 2016 Update – What’s New

A new mesh environment, German language support, and some nice improvements went into this Fusion 360 update.


QUICK TIP: Open in Fusion 360

Are you looking to move your designs to Fusion 360? Check out how we’ve enhanced our online training lessons to allow you to follow along!


There is a new CNC mill on the scene: Othermill Pro

The new mill sports a higher spindle speed, faster rapids, and stiffer construction, making it easy to precisely prototype the parts you design in Fusion 360.

Your Ideas from the Fusion 360 IdeaStation

We take your suggestions very seriously as they help to shape Fusion 360, so please share your ideas and vote for new features / enhancements you would like to see. Here are a few from this week.


Use Dimension Value from Solid Command also for Sketch Dimension

It would be great to make the sketch distance use the thickness value for a thicken command.


Named Views in Animation

It would be great if the “named views” can also be used in the animation workspace.


Rigid Body Dynamics

I would like to see rigid body dynamics, similar to what is available to me through Autodesk Simulation with its MES capability, added to the Simulation module of Fusion 360.


Have a story to share? We would love to hear more about you and how you’re using Fusion 360! Shoot me an email at Shannon.McGarry@autodesk.com
