Fusion 360 for mechanical engineers

Connect your mechanical engineering processes 

Create 3D models, engineer, simulate, and manufacture all on one platform. 

Work with the best mechanical engineering platform for engineers

100x 

Investigate upwards of 100 3D design iterations in the amount of time it would traditionally take to complete one.


5x 

Design, engineer, and manufacture a product in one day instead of an entire business week.


75%

Reduce your mechanical engineering time by 75% when compared to traditional 3D design methods.


Push the limit with 3D modeling

Engineer your products with a complete set of 3D modeling and design tools that include parametric, freeform, direct, and surface modeling.

Solve mechanical engineering challenges faster

Simultaneously generate multiple options of your 3D design while consolidating parts, reducing weight, and improving overall product performance.

Avoid overpriced simulation software

Test your designs to ensure they will survive real world conditions using one model, in one affordable software solution.

Features

Fusion 360 features for mechanical engineers

3D design and modeling

Engineer products with comprehensive 3D modeling and analysis tools. Ensure products' form, fit, and function.


Sketching

Create and edit sketches with sketch constraints, dimensions, and a powerful suite of sketch tools.


Direct modeling

Edit or repair imported geometry from non-native file formats. Make design changes without worrying about time-based features.


Surface modeling

Create and edit complex parametric surfaces for repairing, patching, or designing geometry.


Parametric modeling

Create history-based features, including extrude, revolve, loft, sweep, etc., that update with design changes.


Mesh modeling

Edit and repair imported scans or mesh models, including STL and OBJ files.
