Intern Blog Series – Post 1: Want Fusion 360 for Free? Here’s how.

Here in our Portland Office, we’ve been lucky enough to have interns from FIRST robotics the past 6 years.  You can read about our fresh batch of high school in college interns in Shaan Hurley’s post from last week –  New High School Interns in Autodesk Portland Office.  I’ve been working with a few of them and letting them try their hand at content strategy.  Their first post, written by Andrei Stoica, covers some of the basic information they share with other robotics students, coaches, and mentors about how to get Fusion 360.

 

FIRST interns

 

Autodesk provides free temporary licenses for many types of users for many of their products, including Fusion 360. If you’re a student, hobbyist, maker, or member of a startup, you can get Autodesk 360 for free.

 

Students

 

If you’re a student in high school or college, you can get Fusion 360, or most Autodesk products, for free for the duration of your studies. Autodesk even has a great Educational Community. To get started, navigate to Autodesk’s Knowledge Network, where you can begin getting your free license. Simply create an Autodesk account through Fusion 360’s Educational Portal (or sign in if you already have one) and complete your profile. Congratulations, you just got access to Fusion 360 for free!

Makers & Hobbyists

 

If you are a tinkerer that loves making things, you can get Fusion 360 for free! As long as you are using Fusion 360 for wholly non-commercial purposes, it’s yours. Create an account through Fusion 360’s portal for hobbyists and startups to get started. How wild, you just got yourself Fusion 360 for free!

 

Startup Employee

 

Working for a startup that needs CAD software? You might qualify for a free 12 month license of Fusion 360. If your startup generates less than $100,000 per year in total revenue, you are eligible for a free, year-long license. To see if you qualify, check out Fusion 360’s portal for hobbyists and startups. That’s all, you just got Fusion 360 for free!
