General Usage Instructions

For a complete illustrated workflow of what the add-in does and how to use it, please visit and/or watch the explanation video.


Ribbon/Toolbar Icon Command Command Description

Nifty Dogbone

Creates circular cuts in interior corners of a solid that represents material that will be machined with a mill or router. Because a circular bit can't cut sharp internal corners, the dogbone defines removing additional material in internal corners to allow the full use of the corner.

Update Dogbones

Forces all existing dogbones to re-calculate based on the current model.

Nifty Corner

Rounds edges of sheet stock. This automates the selection of edges and creates a standard fillet feature.



The installer downloaded from the App Store installs the add-in in the App Store location for Autodesk® Inventor® add-ins. 


You can disable 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 the "Run on Startup" checkbox at the bottom of the dialog causes the add-in not to be loaded in future sessions of Fusion 360.

1. Support for the September 2023 release of Fusion 360. 2. Added a new "Nifty Corners" command that automatically selects edges on models produced from sheet stock and creates a fillet feature. See the example image below. 3. Fixed a problem where only a single edge could be selected in Edge selection mode. 4. There's a known problem when using "Nifty Dogbone" in a Manufacturing Model where the toolbar goes blank. So far, no fix has been identified, but there is a simple workaround. A message is now displayed giving instructions on how to work around the problem.
