Using imported shapes in Fusion

by GhostMouse


This is in regards to the maker coin I've been working on. The mouse outline was one I drew and then used Selva to turn into a shape to put in the design. However, my goal wasn't to have it as an outline, but actually to have the entire shape cut out. Does anybody know how to do that? I'm very brand new to Fusion and quite new to 3D design as a whole.

CFD Simulation

by bipsen

Has anyone tried to do CFD simulation on a design from Fusion 360 ?

I am looking into modifying a fan duct for my 3D printer, and would like to try to simulate the airflow ...
The design can be exported from F360 i step format, and then uploaded to e.g. SimScale ... But I am having difficulties in how to specify inlet and outlet, as it in SimScale seems to be hard to specify these when I have the finished model (and SimScale seems to like "closed" surfaces" ...

Error when using Convert: Bad Allocation

by Animu

I am trying to bring a high poly model into Fusion. I converted the stl to a quad mesh using Instant Meshes, and am trying to use Convert to convert it into a T-Spline following this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=167&v=aMZKgzBpodI
However, when I try to convert it runs for ~30min using almost 100% of my CPU, RAM, and disk until it throws a bad allocation error.
How do I fix this? Do I just need more RAM?

Hi, Hello to everyone
I am completely new to Fusion360. I have taken the steps to convert a file to STL for printing to no avail. Apparently the version of F360 I installed on my Mac is outdated. The original STEP file was downloaded from GrabCad. I uploaded it to Autodesk MyHub and then within the F360 convert it to F360 format. When I double click the converted STEP, I get an error dialog box reminding me to update the F360 and clarifying the newest version that I need is not on Apple App store yet.
So, here I am, hat in hand. Could someone please open the STEP in Fusion360 and create individual STL files from the three elements of the mechanism. It's an interesting take on Geneva Mechanism
