    Default 33% off Fusion sale Today only

    For anyone considering Fusion, here's a link to the sale going on today only. $332 per user for one year subscription.

    33% Off Fusion 360 Subscription | Buy Fusion 360 Software | Autodesk

    I'm not a fan of the subscription model, nor of Autodesk, but this was enough inducement for me to give it a try for a year. I've wasted better money in worse ways. I've been using a free trial and developing a code generator for it for one machine and I'm impressed with what it will do so far. YMMV

    There's things I don't like about it but it's serviceable. They make it so cheep I don't see how small shops or start ups could choose anything else.

    When we first started to get into more sophisticated programming than what you could do at the machine control, we used BobCAD. It worked pretty good for us and I had no complaints with it - other than their sales techniques.

    A few years later we switched to OneCNC and we loved it and still use it (I think we are on XR-7). Works pretty good for 3D work (which is a bigger and bigger part of what we do).

    A couple of years ago, we also bought (rented) Fusion. We like it pretty well. One of my sons uses it all the time and he makes good parts with it so that's all I care about.

    I would buy this if I were starting up a small business. This will give you a feel for cad/cam software and when you get a lot of experience then maybe move into a higher end software package.

    I have the one month trial starting today.
    I also spent about 45 minutes with a salesman going over the platform.
    I think I am going to give it a try- I was told the 33% off deal runs till Jan 26.

    They sent this file which is the exchange platform to send a model to a client to look over and mark up for changes.
    This would be a useful widget for me as about all I do is send out drawings like this to non CAD fluent customers to explain the proposed work.

    Fusion

    Aha, the old "today only" trick!

    That markup deal is neat, thanks.

    Well I am just getting started to see if I can get up to speed quickly enough to jump over to Fusion 360 as my default CAD platform.
    I have all the sundry drawings of ongoing and upcoming projects to contend with.

    I need fluency TODAY as I have work to do- likely?
    Perhaps not and a more gradual transition will be needed.

    The first model started to get a feel for the platform.
    Note the offer on price pinned at top:

    Edit- coming along but does anyone know how to create the widget file I posted above in post #6 to share a file?
