FUSION 360 FOR MECHANICAL ENGINEERS

Connect your disconnected processes.

Stop battling your tools. Design, engineer, simulate, and manufacture all in one product development platform.

Push the limit with 3D modeling

Don't let your current tool dictate your workflow. Engineer your products with a complete set of 3D modeling tools that include parametric, freeform, direct, and surface modeling.

Solve engineering challenges faster

Simultaneously generate multiple options of your design while consolidating parts, reducing weight, and improving overall product performance.

Avoid overpriced simulation tools

Test your designs to ensure they will survive real world conditions using one model, in one affordable platform.

Outperform with Fusion 360

100x

Investigate upwards of 100 design iterations in the amount of time it would traditionally take to complete one.

5x

Design and build a product in one day instead of an entire business week.

75%

Reduce your engineering time by 75% when compared to traditional design methods.r

What used to take days, now is done in hours
- Jim McWherter Brand Motion

Direct Modeling

Edit or repair imported geometry from non-native file formats. Make design changes without worrying about time-based features

I love creating models with Fusion 360, it is very easy to sculpt, shape, and scale. Other programs make it very square and not exactly what I want.
- Kate Jovanovic

Surface Modeling

Create and edit complex parametric surfaces for repairing, pathcing or designing geometry.

In Fusion 360, within 20 minutes I had both contract points for the truck. In another tool, I would have budgeted 3-4 hours.
- Ed Eaton Dimonte Group

Parametric Modeling

Create history-based features, including extrude, revolve, loft, sweep, etc., that update with design changes.

With the eight-hour process for me to do in another tool, I can hop into Fusion 360 and have something in two hours the first time.
- Christian WelchSwissomation

Mesh Modeling

Edit and repair imported scans or mesh models, including STL and OBJ files.

My favorite features are user experience and speed. Design something and then build it in a day, whereas previously it might have taken a week.
- Adam Ellison Co-founder, Modbot

Freeform Modeling

Create complex sub-divisional surfaces with T-splines and edit them with intuitive push-pull gestures.

Learn more

Fusion 360 allows me to resolve the form in 3D & create renderings 50% faster than existing tools.
- Deborah Laun Browntie Design

Rendering

Create photo-realistic images of your model, leveraging local or cloud rendring.

Learn more

It's so easy to render, the team was able to create 15 variations of color and material in 15 minutes, not 120 minutes it would have taken before.
- Mike Kowalski Browntie Design

PCB Design Integration

Synchronize bi-directional changes from your electronics designs seamlessly with Autodesk EAGLE interoperability.

Download free trial

Fusion 360 has reduced our time to market by about 60%.
- KMP Motorsports

Sheet Metal

Design sheet metal parts components, document flat patterns using 2D drawings and DXFs, and manufacturing your design with cutting strategies for water jet, laser and plasma machines.

We could finally use a CAD program that didn't need hours of preparation before starting to design. You just sit and start creating.
- Luciana Montivero

Assemblies

Assemble designs with a traditional bottom-up, middle-out, or top-down appraoch and analyze assembly motion.

Download Free Trial

You can just start modeling your ideas... large assemblies can be animated well.
- Consumer Goods Product Designer
