New Fusion 360 release

Good news for those of us that use Fusion 360. The latest release has significantly improved text handling, including adding the long overdue text on a path feature. Yay!

Also, I don’t know exactly when they added it, but the Manufacturing Workspaces + Arrange feature is awesome. Automatically goes from a design model to a flat sheet with all the parts nested, and without modifying the original model!

Oh, finally! That was so tedious.

Where is this magic located? I’m not very good at navigating the F360 interface yet. :frowning:

EDIT: I found the manufacturing workspace…still not seeing an “arrange” function, though.

It’s in preview, you have to turn it on the the preferences. See here.

I’m planning to do a little tutorial/walkthrough this evening.

Then finish edit, create a setup and process with Colorific as per usual.

Are you using the free version? I don’t have that option in Preferences. :frowning:

Me either (also on the free version).

Oh, that really sucks. I thought those were all public preview features.

I think I accidentally have a subscription because I purchased 3 years of Eagle CAD and they merged it into F360. I have no desire to renew but this is a massively useful feature that I will be really pissed off to lose.

I’m not going to make the video, because I don’t want to promote something that isn’t included in the free version.

Oh, well. I’m not good enough with F360 yet for it to make much difference to me, I guess.

At least we do get the new text improvements!
