Description

Autodesk® Fusion 360™ add-in lets the user export the selected sketch to a DXF file in which the splines have been converted to polylines.

 

Some laser cutters do not work with splines. In order to avoid having to open the DXF in another product to do the conversion, this add-in does that for you.

  • Great, only missing arc corners
    Wietse Van Geel | September 22, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This addon saves me a lot of time redrawing splines. But for me one thing is missing: arcs are made into polylines with a amount of segments depending on the chosen amount of segments.

    It would be great if the addon recognizes arc segments in the spline and converts them to arcs (fillet) in the .dxf. Now I'm doing this manual using r=sqrt((c^2)/(2*(1-cos(180-A))) where r is the radius of the desired fillet, c is the distance between the two points connecting the arc to the lines, and A is the angle between the two lines to which the arc is connected.


  • Fantastic - A Critical Missing Feature in Fusion
    Kenneth Maclean | August 14, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Works like a charm, and is exactly what I needed when sending parts out for external fab.

    It is unfortunate that this has to exist as an add-in though. It should be a default option during the export process in Fusion 360. Not being able to handle splinese is an extremely common problem when dealing with older laser cutters, waterjet cutters or other 2D CNC machines.


  • KiCad loves it

    Perfect.


  • Saved me on this one

    Work like a charm. Fusion has limited export file extensions and the program I run to generate CNC Router toolpaths will import dxf format. Wish Fusion 360 exported dxf directly with the add-in but this works well.


  • Thank you

    Thank you for updating this recently I used to use this and then I ran into the issue where it would not activate the sketch I then cried and gave my puppy a dirty look. No more though!!


  • Nope -> Yup!

    Had issues exporting sketch splines to DXF the default way, went to the forums, got referred here, tried it and the results are even worse. Ended up just patching the missing splines back into the DXF using Inkscape. Edit: There must have been something weird with the certain version of Fusion I was using because since updating the app works fine. It's the perfect workaround for the default "Save as DXF" which gives really weird results.

    Though the main purpose of these apps from my team is to showcase the power of the API and everyone is welcome to use the source code and modify it as they wish, I'd still be interested in seeing the model it fails to work with. Would you mind contacting us on fusion.apps@autodesk.com to provide more information? Thank you!


  • Excellent App
    Sascha Hirschhausen-Funk | April 27, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Now I can prepare my sketches for the lasercutter. Thank you!


  • Excellent
    Desire Nwaobasi | April 05, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This should be merged by default in the main app.


  • Works like a charm, allows me to export DXF files of spline entities, which I couldn't do with previous versions of F360
    Justin Pither | November 30, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This does exactly what it says on the tin. A little fiddly to get started with, but it is now indispensable to me - I use it multiple times per day.
