  • Insanely good, thanks Autodesk

    By Donnie Herman
    If anyone is paying attention, Autodesk is the best and this App is awesome. Nothing is perfect and every program can be improved, but this is the program to invest in.
  • Unusable on my Late 2010 Mac mini with 16 GB of Ram with maxed out specs

    By Christopher Doryan
    I guess this program is meant to be run on more modern Macs.
  • Installs and updates break the program

    By Tech4Teachers
    NOT FOR SCHOOLS ....unreliable It's just too buggy, when you give them specific screenshots and investigate the problems with them, their patent response is to ask you to talk to them over and over and over again and then tell you to use either their web site version or the apple sore version...niether work....then they want you to use the auto uninstaller or the manual method ....OK...but still no success. A login screen that appears then disappears then takes approx 5-8 minutes to reappear...is just strange to say the least. Things just fail to draw on screen....in the worst cases it's the login and can even be the uninstaller "yes" "no" buttons....the fault is in your code if a bog standard mac with a Geforce GTX card can't display your gui....and only yours ....all other graphics intensive apps on this machine work flawlessly and it it fully up to date.. Even tried installing developer versions of the asp.net, Visual Studio and, C# libraries in FULL to this machine direclty from Microsoft....no effect. Watch below in the comments ...their social media relations intern will give the same patent response ...I don't need a warm fuzzy response I need access to my files so I can migrate to OnShape, I'm done with this! Claims of Mac compatibility are grossly exaggerated. If it's a firewall program .....I get why the login would fail but why are the butons on your uninstaller not working? I know correlation doesn't always equal causation but come ON! Publish the server list we are supposed to whitelist, buy a 4 year old Mac and see if your software runs on it...newsflash... vitual machine testing is not the same as testing on the actual hardware.
  • It just crashes all the time

    By 67848746783523765
    I guess, Autodesk lost control. The software does not work well anymore. It crashes all the time on my computer. It stalls, etc. Summary, not usable anymore
  • It's great when it's not crashing

    By cobrabyte
    Save early and often with this one. Also, heck of a price increase... not sure it's justified until the program is more solid and 'professional grade.' I'm canceling my subscriptiong because a jump from $40/mo to $60/mo without substantial reliability boost doesn't make sense.
  • Keeps telling me to update

    By horsefighter
    FIX THE FORCE UPDATE ISSUE!!!!!!!! This is a HUGE HASSLE to deal with the update being forced and not even able to update it. Renders the app completely useless. Why isn’t there a solution for this? How about a simple link for MAC users to download the update!??!!?!?!?!?!
  • powerful, complete, still crashes, needs PAID SUBSCRIPTION

    By Chris A, from Redondo Beach
    I use the software a LOT. Almost daily. The learning curve is steep but once you learn it, there is no thing you can’t design. It handles freeform “organic” designs and also very “mechanical” parts. It can drive CNC machine tools and 3D printers. It has a huge and professional set of features. On the negative side * After the free trial you pay a subscription to use this * You eed internet access and your data is stored on their servers. Yes you can download it for safety but the working copy is their cloud. This is good and bad. VERY bad hen their server is down. * Some ties you have to figure work arounds when you find a bug and there are many. Fortunately with Fusion360 there is always a half dozen ways to do everything s I’ve never sen a “show stopper” bug (except if their servrs are dead.) I can’t complain about he price. If you used this every day for real work $60 per month is not bad. But yu will pay this for the rest of your life forever. So you’d best be using this professionally or you’d be hard pressed to justify the price Over all only three stars because for the high price I’d expect zero bugs and zero server down time. This is still a work in progress and I’d NEVER use it for bussenees critical work flow. Fr that spend 10X or 20X more for a more profesional product like Solid Works. But Fusion360 lives in that Grey zone between low-end CAD and the truly profesional level profucrts and is priced accordingly. You CAN use this for profesional level design work.
  • Decent App With Major Flaws

    By Joshuaengler
    Fusion 360 is a very powerful and capable app when it comes to its essential tools and workflow. Unfortunately its performance on Macintosh is unbelievably bad, at best. The app often will not open on the first try, (even on both of my Mac Pro's), it often takes 2 or 3 tries just to get the app to open correctly. The incredibly slow launch time (up to a minute) makes this a very tedious app just to get open. This app crashes more often than any other application I've ever used, often in the middle of projects. Not to mention its extremely poor viewport performance, such as rotating around an object in 3D space, it just feels laggy and unresponsive. Every other 3D modeling app I use is smooth as butter (Blender, 3ds, Inventor, Maya), so I know it's not just my computers. Many essential tools to the toolkit seem unnecessarily obtuse to use as well, though that may come down more to personal preferences. I love AutoDesk and their products, they are a fantastic company with great support for their users, especially those who purchase software. However, I must highly recommend you look elsewhere for parametric product modeling as this app is far too laggy in performance and unstable. I recommend SW, Rhino, and even other products from Autodesk such as their fantastic "Inventor" and "Alias".
  • love it, absolutely the best!

    I started with Pro Engineer and Solidworks, but Autocad Fusion is simply the best!!! Thank you, thank you.
  • UGH, Not at all Stable.

    By Ashapiro75
    I’ve used a lot of different 3d programs.. Maya, Alias Wavefront (back in the day), Lightwave, 3ds Max, Rhino, Softimage (another oldie), Blender, etc… The UX varied from app to app, I don’t mind the UX for this app but it definitely has it’s learning curve. They all do to be honest with you. What I hate about this app is that it’s pretty much unusable for me. I have one of thew new Macs and have 32gb ram. This App just constantly crashes on me. Constantly. Always at the worst times and it seems to never have a recent autosave that I can re-load so I’m constantly having to redo 15-20 minutes of work. Stabilizing this software should be Autodesk’s primary concern. I like to use this app because it’s fairly easy to create very high precission models with it, once you get passed the learning curve of the UI. Unfortunately this app frustrates me more than it satisfies me so I’m going it a low rating. Stop building out features and focus on bugs and technical debt for your next bunch of releases. Make it stable and usable. If you need to create precision 3d objects for print, this is a very good software program if you can stand to constnatly restart the software and deal with making 2 steps forward and 1 step back every time it crashes. Get in the habbit of hitting ctrl-s after everything you do. It’s the only way to make sure you don’t lose your work when it crashes. ctrl-s ctrl-s ctrl-s ctrl-s Get used to it or deal with the frustration.
