  • 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.
  • Fantastic for hobbyists

    By Kacper L
    As a professional design engineer I can appriciate Fusion 360. Although I think there are other programs that are more suitable to be used in a professional environment, for example Inventor which is also made by autodesk, I think that Fusion 360 is an incredibly powerfull software that is capable of a lot, but only once the user is familiar with the user interface.
  • Good software

    By Paul1662829285
    Works well
  • Beautiful app, well developed and of course, its Autodesk!

    By J.Naeve
    Firstly, its not free as some reviewers suggest, there is a trial period which is free but the membership fees are published on the app page. Its a great tool, very useful and perfect for 3D design work from your Mac. Autodesk has been a long-time authority on 3D software, outstanding capabilities and power, very well written app.
  • Fantastic CAD / Design App

    By ergoio
    Just constantly impressed with Fusion. The learning curve is helped a lot with their vast online tutorials, and the price for a little hobbiest like me (free!) is just incredible compared to using something like Rhino with CAD/CAM plugins. Absolute gem of a product, and thanks to all the development team that seemingly push constant updates and improvements.
  • Super value, great product

    By Abq Michael
    I am a retired engineer and have been using Fusion 360 for a year now as a hobbiest. My main project has been to design some shoji-based window treatments and machine them on a Shopbot 3 axis wood router. I am actually flabergasted by how powerful this program is as well as how (relatively) easy it has been to learn. I can literally draw, assemble and visualize every detail of my design down to the thousandths of an inch, then disassemble the parts, lay them out on a virtual table, and use that drawing to program the Shopbot to cut them out. (I have not yet used other analytic capabilities.) That Autodesk makes this amazing capability available to hobbiests and students for free is brilliant. Having first thought that it would cost me several hundred per year, I was hesitant. But after using a trial version for a few months I was ready to bite the bullet and pay some. It was then I found out it was free for me. Phew. Sure, there are a few things I would make better. Like, for example, my design and the manufacturing layout spans several files. I would like to be able to share that whole library with friends and the community. Fusion only lets me export files and once exported, all the links break. I would also like to use parametrics better so that I can better reuse my drawings at scale. But the program lacks a branching concept that would let me make and keep families of parts that all come from the same base. But OK. So I create more files than needed. It’s still an amazing program.
  • Pretty awful

    By Pkhouston
    So it takes FOREVER to launch even on my new(er) Macbook Pro then, you have to create an account before anything. I’m not a fan of that. But the kicker was that there is a 30 day “trial” after that. Give me a price, I’ll pay or not pay… These “subscription-based” software packagaes aren’t for me.
  • Download from the Autodesk Website!

    If you download from the Autodesk website you’ll be sure to get the updates on time… the app store has delays.
