Why professionals use Autodesk Fusion 360

Fusion 360 for teams

One product development tool for teams

Global design and manufacturing teams rely on Autodesk Fusion to efficiently ideate, create, collaborate, and manage their development processes in a single solution with cloud and data at the center.

 

“With Autodesk Fusion, we can execute several different functions within one package, and that has been the most important thing for us. We don’t have to use Rhino for sculpting or SolidWorks for mechanical design. We can do that with the same software and actually all work on the same file at the same time. It’s a huge benefit.” - Carl Budd, Engineering Manager, Moose Toys


fusion 360 for machinists

3D CAD/CAM for machinists

Machine quality parts faster with Autodesk Fusion. Reduce cycle times to improve your bottom line with integrated 3D CAD/CAM software.

 

Our business has grown by 400% in just over a year, and we can attribute a lot of this growth to Fusion 360. Fusion 360 is a CAM system that is made for making parts. - Conrad Nerc, Nerc Precision Engineering


fusion 360 for electronics engineers

3D PCB design for electronics engineers

Gain access to fully functional, comprehensive PCB design. Unify MCAD and ECAD workflows in one end-to-end solution for electronic engineers with Autodesk Fusion.

 

We merge electronics with mechanics. There are very few software firms that are capable of doing this. Autodesk Fusion 360 was therefore the logical choice, as they connect all departments, electronics, and mechanics for us. —Mario Tousek, Managing Director, tousek


fusion 360 for industrial designers

3D prototyping for industrial designers

Speed up ideation and connect with engineering teams faster. Industrial Designers use Autodesk Fusion to accelerate design, testing, fabrication, and collaboration with 3D prototyping.

 

My prior approach to modeling was very time-consuming. With Fusion 360, I can spend more time being creative and thinking about the concept more—rather than getting bogged down with little details. - Allan Williams, Independent Designer


fusion 360 for mechanical engineers

3D modeling for mechanical engineers

Simultaneously generate multiple 3D design models with Autodesk Fusion, allowing mechanical engineers to solve challenges faster and ensure their products will survive real world conditions.

 

When it comes to Fusion 360, it’s the whole concept of the ability to share models, create assemblies in one file, see all the component dependencies, doing all your motion studies, and figuring out interfaces in one place.— Steve Milanoski, Head of Advanced Manufacturing, Romar Engineering
