Autodesk® Netfabb® for Autodesk® Fusion 360™

Autodesk® Netfabb® for Autodesk® Fusion 360™

Win64, English

Autodesk, Inc.
Netfabb for Fusion 360 helps you quickly prepare your models for 3D printing on virtually any machine.

General Usage Instructions

This app provides two workflows to get models from Fusion 360 into Netfabb / Netfabb Simulation.

  • The first one is the Design Space Workflow. In this workflow, you only design the model in Fusion 360 to then complete the additive manufacturing step in Netfabb
  • The second workflow is the Manufacture Workspace Workflow. Here you first design the model in Fusion 360, then execute the main manufacturing steps in Fusion 360 to finally push the model scene to Netfabb or Netfabb Simulation for the last step

 

Design Space Workflow

  1. In Fusion 360, select the body/component you wish to export.
  2. In Design Workspace, click on the Tools Tab. Afterward, open the Make dropdown. Select the Netfabb for Fusion 360 add-in. This will open the Netfabb for Fusion 360 window within Fusion 360
  3. If you haven't already done so (or if or you wish to change your selection), click on the body/component you wish to send to Netfabb or Netfabb Local Simulation
  4. Clicking OK will open the model in the version of Netfabb or Netfabb Local Simulation installed

 

Manufacture Workspace Workflow

  1. Open the Manufacture Workspace in Fusion 360
  2. Select the Additive Tab
  3. Create an Additive Setup
  4. Position the part and create supports as needed
  5. Open the Action Dropdown. Select Netfabb for Fusion 360 to transfer your workspace to Netfabb or Netfabb Simulation

Commands

Installation/Uninstallation

Install:

The installer that ran when you downloaded this app/plug-in from Autodesk App Store has already installed the app/plug-in.

OR, simply double-click the MSI to install the app. 

Uninstall:

You can unload the add-in without uninstalling it by clicking the "Stop" button when the add-in is selected in the list box on the "Add-Ins" tab of the "Scripts and Add-Ins" dialog.

Unchecking "Run on Startup" causes the add-in not to be loaded in future sessions of Autodesk® Fusion 360™.

To uninstall this plug-in, exit the Autodesk product if you are currently running it, simply rerun the installer, and select the "Uninstall" button.

OR, you can uninstall it from 'Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features' (Windows 7/8.1/10), just as you would uninstall any other application from your system.

Additional Information

The Addin works with Netfabb 2018 and above versions and with Netfabb Local Simulation 2020 and above.

Known Issues

1. If you already have an old version (version 03 and below) installed and you download the new one, choose the Repair option in the installer.

2. The connection between this app and Netfabb Simulation from the Manufacture Workspace is not working as intended. We are working on a fix for that.
