Autodesk Virtual Academy: Fusion 360 Collaboration

by Brian Mongkolpoonsuk on Jan 9, 2017

One of the greatest perks of Fusion 360 is its collaborative capabilities. Users can work together on projects, send models to customers, and even pull up a 3D model viewer on their phone. Fusion 360 is very diverse in its export options as well as the types of imported data it supports. 

In this session of Autodesk Virtual Academy, we revealed how to collaborate with your team through distributed design, design comments, and mobile viewing. We also highlighted best practices to store and manage all design data in one place with Fusion 360's version control.

Say Goodbye to "You Can't Make This"

by Anthony Rodriguez on Dec 20, 2016

My dad was a machinist by trade, so my interest in manufacturing started young. He would often come home at night and talk about what he’d made that day, the challenges of making it, why it was important. I remember holding parts for the STS-26 Space Shuttle in my hands. Landing gear from the Boeing 757 and the F-15. I started wondering: who invents these designs and how does all this stuff happen? I thought, maybe this is what I want to do.
