Autodesk Fusion 360 is a cloud-based commercial software package for doing parametric CAD, electrical drawings, simulation, rendering and CAM. At Pikes Peak Makerspace members use Fusion to create output suitable for our 3D printers and CNC machines. The software is free for hobbyists, non-commercial use, and for qualifying startups.


"Intro to Fusion 360 manufacturing ( making CNC Gcode)" is offered every second Thursday.
