The manufacturing extension
is a bundle of sophisticated Autodesk manufacturing technologies, reimagined and delivered in Fusion 360 to increase production efficiency. Upon activation, this extension will act as a hybrid manufacturing environment, letting users perform state-of-the-art processes like complex surface finishing, automated drilling, additive manufacturing, and automated verification workflows.
By using these automation and optimization tools during programming, users will generate more effective NC programs faster, yielding time savings across both programming and machining, resulting in a faster time-to-market.
is a cloud-based CAD/CAM tool for collaborative product development that combines industrial design, mechanical engineering, and machine tool programming into one software solution.
It is is a great CAD package if you're looking to do rapid prototyping, general/mechanical engineering,
3D Design & Modeling
Don't let your design tool limit your creativity and ability to quickly create multiple design iterations. Design how you want in all phases of the product development process
Stop struggling with manual design workflows and ancient, interchange file formats. Gain all the advantages of a full-featured electronics tool and mechanical CAD in a single data-driven platform.
Don’t wait. Test your designs early in the development process to determine usability and uncover costly flaws.
Expand your ability to innovate. Quickly generate high-performing design alternatives from a set of manufacturing and material constraints. Once a solution is chosen, edit your CAD-ready geometry.
Avoid exporting. Easily derive 2D drawings directly from your 3D models to ensure manufacturing accuracy.
Don't let locations, time zones, and extensive reviews lengthen your development process. View all design data from a single project dashboard and easily collaborate with both internal and external stakeholders.
Avoid costly rework, defects, and missed deadlines that impact your bottom line with truly integrated CAD + CAM. Utilize HSM technologies to quickly generate toolpaths that cut cycle times, reduce machine and tool wear, and produce high-quality finished parts.
