- We fixed an issue where all the invisible layers were incorrectly enabled once a new layer for the opened board file was added.
- An Error code 9.7.0-584 error message occurred when you used “update all libraries” an undo was performed for an unlinked managed library. Sorry about that, this shouldn’t happen, so we fixed it.
- Some of you told us that, apparently, changing the highlight color preference from Darker to Brighter made no different for Schematic and 2D PCB. Now it should.
Improved! Filter and find Print Settings based on your additive technology
Now in the Fusion 360 Print Setting library, you can narrow down your print setting choices by using the technology filter. For example, checking SLA will display Formlabs print settings in the Fusion 360 library.
Improved! Print Settings now have High, Medium and Low-Resolution options for Formlabs and HP printers
Previously the default print setting for Formlabs and HP printers used the medium setting for tessellating your components. We now offer 3 settings and the default one is set to use the High resolution so that your prints look less faceted and more organic when printed. You can also access the Print Settings directly from your Setup dialog.
- We fixed an issue where changing the setup orientation to Model Orientation resulted in incorrect stock preview. Now stock preview should works as expected.
- Retract moves were going through the part when recalculating a Steep & Shallow toolpath with edits. This is now fixed.
- The entry for “Edit build strategy” in the right-click menu from the browser entity was incorrectly replaced with the “Simulate additive toolpath” entry. Now it back to “Edit build strategy”.
- We fixed a crash issue when switching from Nesting to the Manufacture Workspace.
We fixed an issue where users were not able to save a recovery file.
Coming Soon: Mesh is graduating from Preview, timeline compatible, and better than ever
We’ve been working hard at improving the Mesh environment, and coming in the next major update, Mesh will be graduating from as a preview feature and will be officially available as a persistent tab within the Design workspace! We’ve completely revamped Mesh from the ground up. Not only have we made its existing tools more robust, but we’re also introducing new functionality that makes the Mesh editing environment more powerful and more integrated than ever before.
We don’t want to spill too much, but here are a few things you’ll soon be able to do with the revamped Mesh experience:
- Open multiple STLs, OBJs, and 3MF files in the same canvas, at the same time
- Automatically visualize and repair common mesh defects
- Convert mesh to usable solid bodies with Faceted or Prismatic options
- Work in history based modeling (timeline mode) or direct modeling (base feature mode)
As we get closer to it’s release, we’ll be sharing more content around it on our blog as well as our YouTube channel, so stay tuned!
Coming Soon: Korean & Spanish Language Support
In addition to German, French, Italian, Chinese, Japanese languages currently available as options in your preferences, you’ll soon be able to run Fusion 360 in Korean and Spanish! We’re excited to make this available for our Korean and Spanish speaking communities and will have a Feedback Hub dedicated for each language when they become available, so we can get your feedback on your experience. We have other languages in the pipeline, and will keep you post on which ones are next!

Unresolved Component issue fixed
This update includes important fixes to the recent “unresolved components” data issue that some of you have been experiencing. If you haven’t updated to this version yet, we highly recommend that you update Fusion 360 at your earliest convenience.
MfgWorkingModel source asset error fixed
Some of you have reported a wonky behavior where if you uploaded a certain F3Dz file, added a Manufacturing model, sketched in that model, created a toolpath in that model and then saved the document, you were prompted with a MfgWorkingModel source asset error. Furthermore, you’d also see an export error message that read “Fusion Team Error Message: Export from Fusion 360 failed, please retry later”. This is now fixed.
Part Positioning tab is now only visible while selecting “Simulation Ready” machines
Previously, if you turned on the Machine Simulation preview feature, the “Part Position” tab incorrectly showed up in additive setup as long as you selected an additive machine. This was unnecessary for additive workflows since they have their own ways to move/arrange parts. The tab was also causing crash issues if you clicked on it. Now this tab will no longer be visible for additive manufacturing, and will only be visible if you have selected “Simulation Ready” machines.
“The file has been damaged and may have limited functionality” error fixed
This error message was showing up for a few of you when you tried to open one of your existing drawings. We got this issue squared away – you should only see this error message if your drawing is truly damaged.
Saving drawing with feature structure as “all level” now works fine
Pabiuro reported to us on the forum that he was having trouble saving his drawing with the feature structure set as “all level”. We found the bug that was causing this issue and now saving, reopening, and export a drawing with more 255 sheets (300 some components) as PDF shows no problems.
