Doesn’t actually do anything. 1/5
By Sober nash
Just a file viewer. Deeply disappointed.
Old dog, new tricks 5/5
After using numerous CAD packages through my like, I stumbled onto Fusion. After a very short learning startup, I find myself able to design, program and make just about anything I can image. From 3d printing to 4 axis machining, Fusion has made my ideas real.
Because the package is easy to learn but yet very capable, I am training my grandson through Titans of CNC, to become a machinist. At 13, he has been able to design, program and machine complicated parts without my help!
To Autodesk, thank you for the great product and your generous policies for student and their teachers
FAR better value than ANY other CAD/CAM available! 5/5
Coming from a Solidworks and SolidCAM history, I can safely say that this software, for the dollar figure, completely destroys the competition! Don’t get me wrong iMachining is an awesome feature but, for the cost involved in a package that would meet both my modeling and CAM needs; forget it. The shear span of capabilities included in Autodesk’s product is AMAZING right out of the gate. I can not imagine what the “top tier” CAM software companies are thinking; how could they EVER expect to survive this onslaught thrown down by Autodesk?
I’ve been using Fusion-360 for over a year now and daily find myself surprised with some new feature r function that I wasn’t aware of the day before. It provides an intuitive modeling component that rivals Solidworks and surpasses it in many ways. This is followed up with a CAM package that has yet to fail me in anything from simple two axis turning and laser cutting to multi axis machining with highly intelligent and versatile tool paths; simply and quickly. All of this for less than I pay for my lunch of a month; if you don’t require multi axis machining, less than my coffee per month.
I don’t see their competition remaining in business in the next five years without their having to be able to market their product price competitively with Autodesk. Yes, that was a bold statement but, take a look at the market currently; just speak with some of your contacts in the CNC machining business and see just how many of them have already made the jump. They have a free trial, there’s nothing to lose; don’t miss out.
Excellent App 5/5
I have been using other CAD programs for a little while and got used to how a few of them worked. I like the fact that as a hobbiest I don’t have a subscription to pay. Had a little issue getting started but the folks at autodesk responded well and got me all fixed up. Great customer support and the learning tools are great too. I like being able to work on my MacBook and I can switch to my wife’s HP laptop and work the same as I did on my Mac. I can see my projects on my iPhone and on my little brothers samsung phone. As stated earlier please keep this non-subscription based for the little guy.
Excellent app 5/5
Just what you would expect from a five star software company. Five stars!
OMG, so smooth and handy to show off things! 5/5
I just discovered this is a thing! I have a huge model that brings my PC to its knees to work on, but navigating and showing it off to friends, family, and FB is such a seemless joy in this app!
Now, what would be cool is to select a part and “share as GLTF 2.0 (GLB) to FB” so it comes over as a rotatable object.
But seriously, this app is now used regularly at night on my phone as I think of changes I might do the next day to my designs.
iOS needs more tools 4/5
By Aidan Shaffer
Fusion UI on the iPhone needs to catch up to what Onshape offers.
Great Companion App 5/5
Fusion 360 is a great companion app to the desktop version of Fusion. I can easily see my models and drawings on the go.
The model view is easy to use, and the ability to pan, rotate, and zoom using the touch screen is slick.
Incredible design power 5/5
This program has changed my way of thinking and how I execute my product design work. Thank you Autodesk TEAM!
Greatest CAD software 5/5
By Leo Boghozian
I rarely write reviews. However, I love Fusion 360 a lot, and it’s my #1 CAD software. I have been using the software/application for more than three years now and I continue to like it even more. Thank you for continuing making this software elegant and efficient. More importantly, giving a chance to students to use it as a free trial. Keep up the great work.
Missing only one thing here! 4/5
This app would receive 5 stars if we could sketch/create/modify models. That would make Fusion 360 the perfect one ring to rule them all!
An Essential Evolving Tool 5/5
If you're a maker, industrial designer or mechanical engineer - this software needs to be in your toolkit. While not as bulletproof as some other legacy CAD packages, the constantly growing combination of tools, such as simulation, CAM and rendering, provides incredible value to the professional maker. Providing this to the world as a free-to-use system for hobbyists and academics is a true gift that the good people behind Autodesk should feel proud of.
The Best 5/5
By ME - Tinkerer
This software is fantastic. Keep it up Autodesk!!!
Very quick and simple to model, the cam is very intuitive. Bugs are addressed quickly, although one bug with chamfer tool path is still exists
I like it, I became proficient with it much quicker than Solid Works
Cannot open all fusion 360 files 1/5
Some files have a “no asset” error thus rendering the app fully worthless.
Not worth the download 1/5
I’d be willing to pay for some like like the desktop versions. A feature parity version on the 2018 iPad Pro 12.9 would be glorious!
Very impressive 5/5
By Beavertail Dave
I have the hobbyist copy but i will be soon purchasing the Fusion360 for my small shop .
Fusion 360 is changing the world. Bring your imagination and inspiration and from your creative mind you can create anything.
Where’s the Full IPad Version? 1/5
Wish there was a full version for iPads. iPad pros have better specs than Mac and could potentially be better for designing products with the use of the Apple Pencil. But this app only lets you view products that I’ve made using the Mac software. Would change to 5 stars if there was a full iPad version.
Great Software 5/5
This is a really useful utility. As others have said, it would be fantastic to have at least limited edit capability on the iPad for small tweaks.
Nice 3D program. 4/5
By Sadly not worth it
Was able to create my first 3D prototype print out of Carbon Fiber.
I’ve tried everything possible to load a file. Just to view anything. Always says “Opps something went wrong. Try again later.” We’ll I’m sick of trying later. In fact never tying again and uninstalling all iOS Autodesk apps. Extremely disappointed since I’m forced to be in the Autodesk eco system with work.
How to create an account 2/5
May I know how to create an account? It just shows “Log in”, thank you :)
I love the pc version application for fusion 360, but this iOS app keeps force quitting. Every time the 3D model is downloaded or almost downloaded and i move the view around, it force quits.
Needs an AR feature 5/5
This app is very useful for my team to communicate our work with our directors.
We and this app really need an Augmented Reality feature to help visualize our designs in the real world on the fly.
Very satisfied 5/5
Although I’m still learning about the Fusion 360 software, I really enjoy using it. I started to make a pocket watch as well as a schooner.
Full version on iPad Pro please!! :) 3/5
Fusion 360 on Mac is fantastic. I use it all the time on my 2015 MacBook Pro and it runs great. With the power of the new iPad Pros outperforming the 2018 MacBook Pros why not bring the full version to iPad? The file system is already cloud based, seems like it would transition nicely. I would love touch control to move models around while drawing with the Pencil. Plus with the keyboard, all the shortcuts we’ve all memorized would transition perfectly. The form factor of iPad seems like the future of computing IMO and like many others have said iOS is lacking pro apps, Fusion 360 would be a welcome surprise. The only thing I ask is, PLEASE don’t make it subscription based. Fusion 360 is the favorite tool of many makers and weekend warriors that just can’t justify a monthly subscription for something they do for fun. Keep Fusion free for the little guy, just like the desktop version.

I have been using Autodesk software for 25 plus years, that being that said I love the capability to be able to pull up my drawings across multiple divorces.
A great app 5/5
By Nikolay Stankov
This is a great app .Perfect for viewing and showing your drawings and designs. It would be great if I could use it to actually design on my iPad.
Great tool for creating 5/5
Awesome tool to create and design almost anything
Best design tool by a long mile! 5/5
So versatile and powerful!
Very Useful! 5/5
I’ve been using fusion 360 for a few years now and it helps me model my projects beforehand. Easier to use than solidworks or other CAD softwares. Overall, It’s awesome!

Your 3D CAD presentation opened doors of opportunity not available to me before. Gerald Griffies, Newnan,Ga. USA
Was good until they stopped updating it 1/5
I loved being able to pull out my phone and show my models to people. This was great for getting people excited about what we are doing. Unfortunately I can’t open any of my new models. All my old models open fine, but anything I’ve saved in a recent version of Fusion 360 reports that it has not assets.
Great for Novice 5/5
Ive only been using Fusion360 for about a year, first cad program ever used, i was up and drawing 3d printable parts in a matter of hours, and in a few days felt like id be using for years! Great program. Recommend for everyone!
Great app 5/5
I like to use this app a lot. ;)
Great so far 5/5
I'm just getting started with Fusion 360. The iPad app seems to be great for reference and visualization of my models.
Best tool for hobbyists 5/5
By Red ocher
I've been using the program for a few months now and it has met or exceeded all expectations. This app is a brilliant way to let me show my models to anyone I'm working with during a project.
Excellent tool! 5/5
Being new to Education this year, Fusion 360 is a Lifesaver! Friendly, easy to use, and the items that can be created then printed on one of our 4 3d printers is amazing! I will be getting into the CNC aspect of it this year as well. Looking forward to it. Thank You!
Great app, could use a few little touch ups 4/5
Overall this is an amazing app for hobbiest use. I can imagine anyone actually creating designs in it but for showing people you're design when you don't have you computer it is perfect. I've had a few issues with it crashing due to big files but that's to be expected running on a phone. Great work as always autodesk 👍
Sign in Log in really ? 1/5
By Shaker Products
After 37 attempts with the password 8 to 12 characters long with three special characters and a number I have yet to be able to create a login with this app. Very disappointing I still can’t see my files.
Limited capabilities 3/5
No way to view tangent edges or hidden lines? No isometric views? Doesn’t display a canvas that was added to a model? For example, an image of an iPhone home screen applied to the face of a modeled iPhone. The thumbnail shows it but not when viewing the model. App often hangs when switching between files. A handy viewer but not enough features.
Pointless app 1/5
Cannot create anything in this app. I feel like this company has paid people to write positive reviews.
Completely useless and a disappointment 1/5
There is literally nothing you can do worth value in this app that you can’t do in a browser. Rather it gains I’m sure some access to your device and then try’s to turn all your clients proprietary designs into what appears to be a social media setting. I got the app because I thought I could do actual work on the go but then realized this isn’t fusion 360 at all and is a false advertisement. If you even can modify a drawing it is not intuitive and the UI is a cheap attempt to mimic a social media platform which has NO useable place in cad/cam which is what fusion360 is supposed to be about. App deleted and if any of my clients designs were posted publicly expect a lawsuit.
Excellent work in progress 5/5
I think if i was paying for Fusion 360 I would have rated it a 3 star program against other programs like Solidworks or catia, but being free to Hobbyists it is the absolute best package available for this market. It's the first to include CAM, simulation, and sheet metal features all built in at no extra charge, which is amazing! The other reason Im giving it 5 stars is they are actively developing it, and they are willing to listen to user feedback to improve the program. There are certainly some areas where it needs some improvement to really be competitive in a professional setting, but I think its getting there.
The mobile app is also a nice touch. Very useful to be able to show my designs to others to bounce ideas off them.
Solid-works who? 5/5
Being a user of Apple products, I was ecstatic when I learned that fusion would be Mac compatible! The user interface is really well done. Simple and powerful. Their free online tutorials couldn't be more helpful... the all in one CAD/CAM is great and I couldn't be more happy!
Very useful 5/5
Great app for sharing and viewing CAD.
Intuitive program 5/5
Been a solid works guy all my life, but loving Fusion now more than any other program. Very user friendly and has the capabilities to do anything 3D with the program.
Only things I would love to see in the future is some isolation capabilities and the Technical drawings to improve. Other than that it's an amazing program. Check it out!
Great tool 5/5
