Fusion 360 – All under one roof


Many years ago I heard rumours of development of design software that would incorporate what you needed at the time all through one interface. If you needed to do a mechanical design the appropriate features and commands would be there. You now needed to create a room around the machinery, the walls and doors and windows commands would be available right there as you willed it. You now had need of the electrical wiring in the walls or the machinery, the appropriate commands would ll be there just pooping out of thin air for you to wield and complete a design that incorporates all deign disciplines.

That rumour has now come true..in a way. Fusion 360, even though it only incorporates elements of mechanical design, it allows you to create it all in one space. Gone are the days where your 3D design had to be done in one software package. The mold design in another (most likely very expensive) package. The electrical design done in AutoCAD. Fusion 360 incorporates everything through one interface with you switching workspaces to make available the commands needed to finish your specific task.

These workspaces which are easily accessible through a drop down will change the ribbon to suite whichever task has been put in front of you.
