Autodesk Fusion 360 3D CAD & CAM tool available on the Mac App Store
SAN FRANCISCO – Autodesk Fusion 360, a cloud-based tool that combines 3D industrial and mechanical design, collaboration, and machining in a single package, has become the first solution of its kind available for purchase worldwide on the Mac App Store. Autodesk says.
“Autodesk has done a great job bringing the complete Fusion 360 toolkit to the Mac App Store,” said Ron Okamoto, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. “Fusion 360 combines design, collaboration and machining tools into a single package, and now it’s available with the security and simplicity of the Mac App Store.”
“The fundamental methods of design and manufacturing are experiencing radical disruption,” said Robert “Buzz” Kross, senior vice president at Autodesk. “We started from scratch and co-created Fusion 360 with the product design community to reimagine 3D CAD and CAM. Our global community loves the Mac, and now they have a faster path to getting started with Fusion 360 on the Mac.”
In the market for just over a year, Fusion 360 is designed to meet the changing needs of product developers and entrepreneurs. With Fusion 360, designers and engineers can create products that have both form and function and prepare them for fabrication with one single tool. As a result, users can explore product ideas quickly and get a prototype far faster.
Fusion 360 also provides a single space for entire teams to collaborate on projects. Built-in and automated data management and sharing ensure all models, designs and information are automatically archived, versioned, managed and can be securely shared with stakeholders.
Additionally, the cloud-based nature of the solution means designers and engineers can access Fusion 360 anytime, anywhere*, whether in the office, or on the go. When used with the free** Autodesk A360 app, Fusion 360 designs and data can be accessed on mobile phones and tablets, so users can keep up with their projects when they’re away from their desktops.
