Autodesk, Inc.
Slicer for Autodesk® Fusion 360™ used as standalone or as Fusion 360 addin lets you use different construction techniques to build your model based on 2D slices and animated assembly instructions

General Usage Instructions

Fusion has a unique way of communicating with Slicer for Fusion 360, which consists on a one click workflow accessible from the Make option (under Solid and Patch) in Fusion. You can then select a component, define resolution and send it to Slicer for Fusion 360. The application can also Open and Save from/into Fusion Team, which helps to keep your whole project together and have a more successful collaboration.

Slicer for Fusion 360 allows you to build your model using different construction techniques, and outputs 2D layouts for laser cutting or CNC, which can be exported as DXF, EPS or PDF.

The application can work standalone by simply importing STL or OBJ files and then specifying materials and construction techniques.

Additional Information

Known Issues

These are the current know issues:

  • On some Windows 10 machines, Slicer crashes. Try updating your graphic card drivers. Onboard graphics tend to fail.
  • After a change of an external component, Slicer won't be able to expose the Sign In window. You can still use the application signed out.
  • Slicer fails to show any slices. The material may be too thin or there are too many slices. Slicer was initially thought for plywood, acrilic and cardboard in low to medium complexity models.
  • Panelization's numbers are wrong. This is a bug, unfortunately. In models of low or medium complexity, you can use the 3d model on screen to guide the right connections.
