    Default Fusion 360, what happened...??????????

    As an infrequent user it was a surprise to see the new menu format. Is the old format still available? Probably not, is my guess.

    What I liked about Fusion was the knowledge base, hardly anything you couldn't find multiple videos on. Trying to follow a couple of the old videos with the new format was near impossible for me at my experience level. I'd be really pissed if I was anything but a free user (semi retired).

    How has the change affected those of you who are frequent users?

    Not much has really changed other than the look, most things are the same, Can is now called manufacture, a few additional options but if you spend a couple hours using it you’ll be fine. If it’s that big of a pain then you weren’t using it enough to notice the changes along the way then what does it matter...

    I rolled my eyes a bit at first and hung on to the old toolbars for as long as I could, but honestly now it seems to be better designed. I can bounce between surface and 3D modeling, etc. without having to use the dropdowns, and everything is organized in a thought-out manner.

    It did take a few weeks to get used to for sure.

    My biggest complaint is it wastes more screen space. Other than that it isn't that much different really.

    This is what they do to keep making money. Sometimes they can go a bit to crazy and ruin the experience that attracted most users. Sometimes you just have to leave what’s not broken alone.

    As I said, infrequent Fusion user..

    I got a new computer, late i7 processor, ssd and nVidia graphics etc. Just for fun I wanted to see how quickly Fusion would load since my older computers are painfully slow. Real quick. But it crashes the computer about 1 in 4 loads. My first thought was Autodesk's fault somehow due to their modifications. Maybe not, apparently a recent Win 10 upgrade has been causing the problem with certain software.
