Fusion 360 allows for quick designs and has a relatively small learning curve. Simple designs are easy to produce. It is being utilized on an individual basis for evaluation. Additionally, I have used the software for small hobby projects for the home and car.
  • It is relatively easy to design a component or product.
  • The design can easily be uploaded to be 3D Printed.
  • Fusion 360 also provides a community base for training and questions.
  • The interface is a bit cumbersome and outdated.
  • I would like to see better integration of 3D file formates that can opened and can be exported.
  • I would also like to see a customizable interface based on the file that was selected.
Fusion 360 is appropriate for learning basic design and creating small parts. It is less appropriate to use when more robust design tools are needed such as lightweight with lattices or compiling large assembly files.

  • Very intuitive interface for 3D modeling beginners
  • FREE FOREVER if your organization makes under $100,000
  • Very natural photorealistic rendering settings
  • Local rendering and cloud rendering options
  • Cannot directly open files created in Maya
Fusion 360 is great for start-ups or hobby modelers. It has great, simple, easy-to-use tools but it does not have some of the more high-level functions needed for either engineering (like Finite Elements Analysis and Stress studies) or very complex rigging capabilities. I consider Fusion 360 to be a beginner software while products like SolidWorks and Maya are for advanced 3D users.

  • Designing different 3D models
  • Analysis of movement of objects that interact with them
  • Exploring all angles of your design
  • Choosing different materials in objects
  • When you use the little box that's on your right upper corner, you can easily choose what angle you want to see, but when you use the specific tool designed to use for moving the camera across the object, usually fails or gets stuck.
  • The force analysis is a little hard/anti-intuitive to use.

  • It should be easier to copy/paste things.
I think it's really a full package when using Fusion 360. It's suitable for 3D modeling beginners and also for experienced modelers that need further analysis of their pieces. It's way easier to use compared to many other 3D modeling programs, and especially when thinking of 3D printing. I think you can use it if you want to design a simple box when you need to design a complex mechanical device.

Fusion 360 is perfect both for education and for professional designers, with all the specific and professional tools it has, it is a very powerful set to learn to create wonderful things.

I think it's a bit less appropriate in the event that I have to have the files and work with different rendering programs at the same time.

This software offers professional tools which are extremely easy to learn when compared to competitors. You can become a CAD expert in just weeks. If you are looking for a software to use that creates clean files for 3D printing, look no further. For teachers, designers, and even hobbyists, Fusion 360 have tools for everyone.
