Autodesk Fusion 360, Your New...Marketing Tool?

Above image created with 10 minutes of work and <10 minutes cloud rendering One of D3’s marketing guys asked me this the other day: “Where are you getting all these stunning and inspirational Fusion 360 images you’re submitting for the Blog?”  Well, ok, maybe I’m embellishing a little…  But he was sure there was some graphics database I was scouring for just the right image. The answer: Fusion 360! Most of the time I have such a specific idea of the image I’m looking for that even if there is a database of Fusion 360 or tech-related imagery out there,…

F360, Built Fusion Tough

So, I’m guessing people have been trying to sell you on Fusion 360 (F360).  Is it the same old Autodesk vs SOLIDWORKS fight, you know the, “Ford or Chevrolet”?   In this case, it shouldn’t be.  Fusion 360 in its current state is more like adding all those cool options we can’t live without to your grandma’s car.  You know the ones; remote start, Bluetooth for our phones (you need to be safe), backup cameras, and what is becoming my new favorite, blind zone detection (Okay maybe I’ve had an issue with that in the past).  Are you confused yet?  Let’s break…

With Fusion 360 You Can...Predict the Future?

If you haven’t opened Fusion 360 for a few days, you may be missing out on the latest huge update in Fusion 360!  It came to us on March 1st. Just earlier that day I hosted a webinar on Fusion 360 & traditional CAD (which you can watch here).  Now, I’m not exactly claiming that it was prophetic, but there is proof to be found that I discussed some things in the webinar specifically that were out of date just hours later...  The crazy fast update cadence of Fusion 360 is one of my favorite parts of the whole platform.  Can I really tell the future, or do…

Hello, My Name is Fusion 360

Fusion 360.  What is it?  Why should I care?  Also, wasn’t it in Inventor like 5 years ago?  Doesn’t it have something to do with the cloud? You have questions. We're here to help. Fusion 360 is already a powerful product development tool.  With a short development and release cycle, the product changes 10x faster than traditional CAD platforms.  Have an idea?  Let them know!  Autodesk is building this new platform from the ground up for the next generation of CAD, and using your input to make it better for you.

Autodesk Fusion 360 – Design Management You Could Only Dream Of

Wouldn’t it be cool if there were a way to make everything you design in one file format?  No more tangle of SLDDRWs, SLDASMs, and SLDPRTs, or IPTs, IAMs, IPNs, DWGs, and IDWs to manage.  Everything, in one format.  Now, this might seem even more unrealistic, but what if you didn’t even have to worry about what the format was?  No scrolling though formats and files, just previews of the designs you’ve built.  Let’s keep going, what if you didn’t have to worry about where you stored a design?  Instead of digging through network and local drives looking fo…
