Try Fusion 360 free for 30-days.


Surface Modeling - Explore ideas and create organic shapes with T-Splines push-pull commands.
Solid Modeling - Direct and history based modeling are seamlessly integrated.
Parametric Modeling – Make changes that automatically update corresponding values and functions of the design.
Mesh Modeling - Import OBJ or STL bodies as mesh models to create custom designs conforming to mesh surfaces.

Data Translation - Import and export design files with unlimited CAD translation of over 50 file types.
Assembly Modeling - Assemble components and show how they work in relation to one other.
Joints & Motion Studies - Create relationships, simulate motion, and review the fit and function of designs.
Rendering - Visualize designs with a variety of rendering tools, environments, effects, and visual styles.
Animations- Communicate design concepts with 3D exploded views and animations to show how a model is built or functions.

2.5 Axis & 3 Axis Machining - Prepare designs for machining with integrated CAM for 2D and 3D milling.
3D Printing - Set up designs for 3D printing within Fusion 360.
Drawings - Document designs with associative 2D drawings—any changes made to the model will be automatically updated.

Collaboration & Sharing - Collaborate within Fusion 360 by tracking and commenting on project progress, or share project components with other team members.
Version Management - Store and manage all design data in one place with auto-save or manual version control.
Mobile Viewing & Management - Access designs on the go with the free Autodesk Fusion 360 app for iPhone and iPad.
Share or Publish Data & Designs - Share designs with the community or with individuals with secure public sharing links.

API Extensibility – Create custom JavaScript’s or use sample scripts for bolt generation, spur gear generation, and simple built of materials extractor.
Form Inspection & Analysis – Validate a model with curvature comb analysis, zebra analysis, draft analysis, curvature mapping, interference checking, assembly motion studies and more.

Release Notes:

CAM - New Form Mill tool
You now have access to the Form Mill tool and use custom sketch profiles to create your own custom tool mill tools. This is super useful for you to build out your own custom tool library.

CAM - Updated setup sheets
Setup sheets now include holder information and tool length, so you don’t have to go download the latest setup sheets separately.

Design & Modeling fixes
•Associativity issue with referenced designs where clicking on “get latest” now updates components correctly at all level.
•Sketch inferencing is now more stable.
•Editing an extrude extent no longer crashes Fusion 360.
•Scaling multiple bodies with a “through all” hole type no longer scales them at 10x the size.

2D Drawings issue fix
Cancelling out of a new base view and going back to the modeling tab where the assembly no longer causes Fusion 360 to hang.

Usability Improvements
•For those of you orbiting around your designs with a 3Dconnexion input device, you’ll be happy to hear that we’ve fixed the zooming issue (in Perspective Camera View) and that you can now fly in and around your model with much better control and precision.
•Mac with touch-bar issue fixed - We started a thread around this issue, and we’re to let you know that this issue no longer exists. Thank goodness!
•Fusion 360 will be supporting only Mac OS 10.11 and higher starting on November 29. If you’re still on Mac OS 10.10 and are an avid Fusion 360 user, then this is a good excuse for you to upgrade to 10.11. For more info about your upgrade options, check out your Mac App Store.

its not free except for hobbyist. - Remember free is not always free. You are allowed to try it for free for 29 days. It has a subscription cost. However, after speaking with the Autodesk rep she told me at the end of the testing period that if you are a hobbist it is free for one year. That fits my bill since I am retired.

Review by _NM_

Unresponsive on MBP Retina late 2013 - This program did not function at all for me. After creating an account, several attempts to complete the first basic tutorial always hung the program needing it to be force-quit. Also, this is NOT a free program. You will probably have to pay after 30 days, as there was an indicator saying 30 days remaining.
