Fusion 360 is an digital tool that can be used in the classroom for the computer aided design of products, rendering, virtual assembley of parts, testing of products and the manufacture of parts through computer aided manufacture. It can output files to a 3D printer, and quickly support students to realise their ideas as an engineering drawing.
With a free educational licence Fusion 360 can be used at both home and school, allowing students to work on their designs in their own time. It also allows students to collaborate on designs, with shared access provided to files through cloud based storage.
