How do you put parts together in Fusion 360?
Using “Insert into Current Design” will create a component in the assembly file that is referenced to the original external design file.
Select Insert into Current Design.
- All bodies, components, and sketches from that file will now be inserted into the Assembly file.
- Move the model into the desired position.
- Click OK.
What is a Fusion 360 assembly?
Assemblies as they are known in other CAD software are a little different in Fusion 360. Assemblies allow us to simulate how other components interact with each other. Traditionally this would be done with a separate “assembly file” responsible for housing all of the components.
What does grounding do in Fusion 360?
Grounding locks the origin of the grounded component to the top level origin in that design/file and only there. So an assembly has its own origin. When you ground the assembly its origin it’s fixed.
How do you create a new version in a Fusion 360 design?
We can do this by opening V2 and selecting File > Save As. Give that file a name, and you have yourself a new, version-controlled handle to work with. That about covers the fundamentals of version control in Fusion 360.
Is Fusion 360 worth the cost?
Modeling with Fusion 360 is easy, simple, fast, and powerful enough for most design projects, so it is worth pursuing. Fusion 360 has many standard features of a professional CAD program. If you want to learn simple, free, yet powerful CAD software, Fusion 360 is the right choice.
