For more detailed information on each parameter description refer to the project documentation (detailed description of bin generator optionsbaseplate generator options). 

  1. Install the Add-In: Begin by downloading and installing the GridfinityGenerator Add-In from the Autodesk® Fusion® App Store. Once the installation is complete, launch Fusion.
  2. Access GridfinityGenerator: Within Fusion, navigate to the DESIGN workplace. In the toolbar, find the SOLID section and click on the CREATE dropdown list. You will now see the new "Gridfinity bin" or "Gridfinity baseplate" menu options. Select the appropriate option based on your requirements.
  3. Specify Parameters: After selecting the "Gridfinity bin" or "Gridfinity baseplate" menu option, a dialog with parameters will open. Here, you can specify the required parameters for your bin or baseplate design. Adjust the dimensions, grid layout, hole sizes, and other settings to match your desired specifications.
  4. Generate the Design: Once you have defined the parameters, click on the OK button within the GridfinityGenerator Add-In dialog. The app will then create a body with the specified features, representing your bin or baseplate design.
  5. Customize the Design: If necessary, you can easily edit the generated body. Simply select the feature you want to edit in the timeline or apply your own features on top. Make adjustments to dimensions, hole placements, or any other parameters as needed. The changes you make will be immediately reflected in the design, allowing you to iterate and refine it effortlessly.
  6. Export for 3D Printing or Other Software: When you're satisfied with your design, it's time to export it for manufacturing. You can use Fusion export functionality.


With GridfinityGenerator, you can streamline the creation of bins and baseplates, and customize them to your specifications. Unlock the full potential of your designs and enhance your workflow with the intuitive features provided by the GridfinityGenerator Add-In.

Version History

Version Number Version Description

- feat: reworked baseplate generating process, now instead of using offset surface it relies on enlarged base tile. That results in better shape dimensions at the expense of clearance between some bin and baseplate surfaces - feat: updated printability groove cuts on magnet sockets to be rotated at 45 degree angle, this allowed to use circular pattern when replicating those cuts - feat: added option for extra cuts for magnet sockets to simplify extraction - feat: added option for padding on the sides of baseplates - fix: addressed a bug where preview bin size was calculated based on hardcoded values instead of user inputs - fix: minor improvements adding names to features and bodies
