Fusion 360 Update
I am liking it!
I am having the usual learning struggles as I expect with any complicated tool. Nothing that can’t be overcome with a little thought processing.
I have designed and produced a number of 3D printed items. Fusion360 produces ready to run .stl files. I haven’t dug into the CAM side of the software other than a little look-see. It appears to be very detailed and can be customized for the CNC machines I use. Tool files, configuration, etc.
I won’t be exploring the CAM until I have a real project. Here are pictures of the designs I have produced.
|Bracket for holding filiment spool||Single tool holder|
|Hollow point type holder (tools)||Keyboard support (2) used on slide out drawer.|
|Split locking ring||.Bracket design. (my first drawing in F360)|
Autodesk is trying their darned best to make Fusion 360 a social club. Providing ranking and awards for the amount of contribution made to their support publications. I am not shy about blogging, but I have no interest in spending a lot of my time doing product support.
I appreciate having a place to share information and look for solutions to problems. I will contribute when I think I have something I have produced for myself. It is not my mission to be the person spending 90 percent of my productive time to earn the highest status award on a Fusion 360 support blog. I am all about making drawings for the things I want to make. I am not looking for rank and glory. That’s just me I suppose…
I am also assuming since Fusion 360 is a subscription and Internet connected, my usage and time spent is being monitored and reported. It can function off line (I haven't tried yet) but I will also assume it will report data once it is reconnected. Ther is no such ting as privacy when connected to the Internet. Never assume there is.
