Overall Satisfaction with Fusion 360

Fusion 360 is a great tool for my company which serves online to 3d printing customers. It's a solid modeling tool which is a necessity for a good 3d printable design. Besides its solid features, Fusion 360 has a special module for 3d printing. It connects to another 3d printing software called MeshMixer created by Autodesk. 3d printable files must have a special extension called *.stl. and Fusion 360 easily handles this file extension without any hassles. There is an urgent need for a 3d printable file to have certain characteristics. If the design has some faulty places then it must be repaired before 3d printing. MeshMixer, which is reachable inside Fusion 360, does this job.
  • Fusion 360 is ideal for technical design jobs. Because it could work on the cloud with multiple users, you can work on the same file with your team-mate or your customer.
  • Fusion 360's other great functionality is its assembly features. You could easily and effectively create assembly parts via Fusion 360.
  • And its greatest feature: Parametric design. This gives a huge capability to a designer. You could change some design parameters after finishing your whole job. Thus, making last-minute changes is very easy on Fusion 360 after negotiating the final design with your customer.
  • Fusion 360 comes free with full features. It's a great software solution for a budget restricted start-up company.
  • Even though it has a very good cloud software, Fusion 360 gets very laggy when using slow internet connections.
  • Fusion 360 uses a vast amount of your device's memory. It is recommended to select the RAM value as high as possible on your device.
  • Fusion 360's sculpting and retopology features are behind the competing software on the market.
  • It gives me totally positive impacts. Its zero cost eliminates the need to search for other software to use.
  • Fusion 360's Autodesk cloud solution enables me to use 3d files generated via other Autodesk design software that are widely used by my customers.
Fusion 360 has a complete set of design features come for free. It is a no-brainer solution for my industry.
Fusion 360 is great for mechanical or technical designs, but its ability to sculpt artistic 3d models is very restricted. It's a business software rather than an artisan software. It works on both cloud and device. Thus, if you do not have an internet connection you could work on your project as well.
