What are the benefits of Fusion 360?

3 April 2023FusionFusion 360



Recognised as one of the best product design and manufacturing software platforms on G2 Autodesk Fusion 360 is quickly becoming a popular upgrade for professionals within manufacturing, engineering, and electronics.

The only integrated cloud CAD, CAM, CAE, and PCB platform of its kind, Autodesk Fusion 360 allows users to:

·        Design and engineer products in line with form, fit, function and aesthetics requirements

·        Create anything using the electronics and PCB design tools

·        Deliver parts to customers faster

Looking to purchase Fusion 360? Customers can receive up to 20% off* Fusion 360, Fusion 360 Extensions, and Persona offerings during April (until April 25). Read more below.

In the meantime, are you new to the software or wanting to understand it further? We explore some of the benefits…

Collaboration and access

Being cloud-based, users can access it from anywhere in the world therefore allowing teams to collaborate and work together on the same project, regardless of their physical location. Fusion 360 also offers version control, which helps teams to manage different versions of their files and projects.

All-in-one solution

Autodesk Fusion 360 is an all-in-one solution for design, engineering, and manufacturing. It features tools for CAD modelling, simulation, collaboration, rendering, and CAM programming. It can be used to design intricate shapes and mechanical assemblies, as well as to create detailed drawings and 3D models.

Parametric modelling

Fusion 360’s parametric modelling feature provides real-time feedback as designers modify the design. Changes made to the model affect the entire design, allowing users to quickly make changes without worrying about losing design data. This feature also allows designers to create multiple versions of a design and compare them side-by-side.

You can choose between two modelling modes, parametric modelling or direct modelling mode which does not capture any design history or parametric relationships.

Simulation and analysis

One of the most significant benefits of Autodesk Fusion 360 is its simulation and analysis tools. Included with the Simulation Extension, it allows designers to simulate different design scenarios and test their designs in real-world situations. With Fusion 360, users can simulate thermal, mechanical, and fluid dynamics, among other physical simulations.

CAM Programming

Create toolpaths for CNC machines using the software’s CAM programming tools. This feature is essential for manufacturers designing complex shapes and ensures that the end product is manufactured to the exact specifications of the design. CAM programming saves time, reduces errors, and streamlines the manufacturing process.


Autodesk Fusion 360 is a versatile software tool that offers a range of benefits to designers, engineers, and manufacturers. This cloud-based platform, all-in-one solution provide more convenience and flexibility for users, allowing teams to collaborate and deliver projects that exceed industry standards.
