Autodesk Fusion 360

Autodesk Fusion 360

Autodesk Fusion 360 is a cloud-based 3D modelling, CAD, CAM, CAE & PCB software platform that combines industrial and mechanical design, modelling & simulation.

Autodesk Fusion 360

Autodesk Fusion 360 is a cloud-based 3D modelling, CAD, CAM, CAE and PCB software platform for product design and manufacturing. It connects your entire product development process in a single cloud-based platform that works on both Mac and PC. It combines industrial and mechanical design, simulation, collaboration and machining in a single package.

The tools in Autodesk Fusion 360 enable fast and easy exploration of design ideas with an integrated concept-to-production toolset.

  • Design and engineer products to ensure aesthetics, form, fit and function.
  • Reduce the impact of design, engineering and PCB changes and ensure manufacturability with simulation and generative design tools.
  • Directly edit existing features or model fixtures with the only truly integrated CAD + CAM software tool.
