Heads up to Fusion 360 users on OS X Lion (10.7):

Due to important OpenGL graphics improvements made in this upcoming September 3rd update, Fusion 360 will no longer run on Apple machines running OS X Lion (10.7). We decided to make this change due to the numerous graphics issues you’ve all experienced in previous updates, and this should dramatically improve the graphics performance, especially on older hardware.

Don’t worry – for those of you who are still on 10.7,  you can upgrade to OS X Mavericks (10.9) for free by downloading and installing it from the Mac App Store. Isn’t that just dandy? Smiley Happy


More information on upgrading from OS X 10.7, you can check out the page here:


Fusion 360 will continue to run on OS X Mountain Lion (10.8) and OS X Mavericks (10.9).

We apologize for any inconveniences this has caused, but we believe this was the right tradeoff for the continual evolution of Fusion 360.

Thank you and sincerely,

The Fusion 360 team
