Design and manufacturing solutions for everyone

Autodesk Fusion is the end-to-end design and manufacturing solution for your business, enabling engineers, designers, and machinists to modernize their product development with tailored workflows and capabilities.

Design and manufacturing team capabilities and workflows

Unified functions

Working in disconnected product development tools can cause errors and delays. Enable seamless teamwork in the same workspace, without the need for multiple tools.


Data management

Storing files locally in different formats can cause version control, collaboration, and security issues. Bring your teams onto one secure, cloud workspace for accessible, current, and secure data.


Access and control

Managers often struggle to get project updates in a timely manner. Fusion provides up-to-date progress info, controlled access to audit trails of changes, comments, and history.


Automated drawings

Streamline design documentation to enable quick and precise 2D drawings from 3D models, enhancing efficiency and accuracy.


Fusion Manufacturing Extension

Unlock additional capabilities for 3 to 5-axis CNC machining, sheet-based nesting and fabrication, and metals-based additive manufacturing.

Machining capabilities and workflows

Automated machining

Program complex, feature-rich components with ease using intelligent whole-part strategies like steep & shallow, deburr, hole recognition, and rotary.

 


Toolpath modifications

Speed up CAM programming with powerful modification tools that can turn a good toolpath into a great one - all without wasteful recalculation time.

 


Multi-axis simultaneous machining

Achieve superior surface finish with specialized 4- and 5-axis toolpaths. Additional axis controls and collision avoidance ensure safe, smooth machine motion.


Setup probing and inspection

Save time and money with spindle-mounted touch probes for CNC machining. Measure stock material, update work offsets, monitor quality, automate part setup, and more.
