Description

Slicer for Autodesk® Fusion 360™ is a tool to turn your digital 3D models into appealing artefacts. It slices and converts 3D models into 2D patterns that you can cut out of any flat material. Slicer for Fusion 360 also creates 3D instructions you can interact with, to help build a model.

 

Create a model in Fusion 360 and with a few clicks you can send your model to Slicer for Fusion 360. Apply various slicing techniques to your model and create 2d plans in EPS, DXF or PDF formats that you can cut using Laser cutter or CNC machine.

 

Slicer for Fusion 360 can be used as standalone or as an add-in for Fusion, and lets you use different construction techniques to build your model based on 2D slices and animated assembly instructions.

  • Get Parts button cant see

    i only see a problem on my labtop using windows 10 you cant see the last button Get Parts. would be nice to see a fix for this problem


  • As useful as eyedrops that cannot be placed in the eye
    Summer Scott | August 03, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Using STLs is ridiculous and makes it pretty useless if you are trying to import it back into F360 and especially if you are going to try to do anything in CAM in F360. A nice concept but just very frustrating once you realize how completely uselessly it integrates with F360 and CAM.

    Fusion is an engineering software, If you are working with STL you are doing it wrong. If you need a artistic software that works with STL, you might consider meshmixer or maya.


  • needs a lot of improvement
    Colby Parsons | June 22, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I am grateful that the functions of 123d Make were retained, and that they are free, but there are a LOT of things that I would like to see improved. The installation process has numerous bugs (install window freezing up entirely, then later at the end of the countdown, etc.). Instructions do not include the fact that one must go into Add-Ins to activate before that is accessible in Fusion. Within Slicer itself there I have found no way to save defaults, and each time Fusion sends a file it opens a new instance, so I end up changing settings over and over and over. Even if the program would offer the option of opening with the same settings it had the last time it was used, that would save so much time. The same goes for material settings. When you create a new material, it doesn't automatically select that for you (something I always found frustrating in 123D Make). Every single time I create a new material, it is because I need that for what I am working on right now. It would make sense for the default action to be that the program would auto-select the new material you make instead of making you go back into that setting area again. Little impediments like that degrade the user experience and make it harder for those of use using these tools for teaching. For "slice direction" it would be great to have an expanded inferface on the left where all angles could be controlled. And finally, I would love to see a better set of options for paper tabs -- there is not a single option for basic paper flaps like the kind Pepakura uses. It would be so nice to be able to have my students just use this program when they need that functionality. The eye icon button at the top of the tool bar would be better if it worked as a toggle (having it the way it is makes no sense to me). I know this software came from a product meant to be "user-friendly", but to me programs are more friendly when I have a few controls in a "settings" area. To me, simplification of interface design often sacrifices control for appearance and the idea of simplicity (simplicity can be frustrating if it does not do what you want). Perhaps you can give us a bit more control without sacrificing too much of the look you want. I really hope you are listening for this kind of feedback and willing to make some upgrades. Doing so will make me more likely to use your software in my classes. --Colby


  • Looks as good as it was when it still was 123d make
    Tom De Weyer | June 22, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I only mis one feature, the options of placement on a sheet. Where is the nested option? kind regards, tom


    Guillermo Melantoni (Publisher) | June 22, 2017

    Hi Tom. Nesting had some issues and we needed to go out with Slicer before 123D Make's back end shut down. Many people work on nesting on the apps they use for cutting. We are gathering feedback on the main issues people see, so we can get back with a fix or enhancements.


  • Awesome
    Shalom Ormsby | June 12, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    It's great to have this functionality in Fusion. Thanks!


  • Silent Command Parameters for Deployment
    It Office | May 25, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    What are the silent command line parameters if any for this? How can this be deployed silently? I would like to try deploy this in a lab of 20 machines via AD which would be great instead of having to install this manually.


  • Still pretty buggy
    Sean Cusack | May 13, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Unlike 123D Make - slicer automatically resizes any incoming STL or OBJ files creating a pretty big headache for me if I'm trying to do any secondary processing. Also, the plugin always seems to fail in Fusion 360, so I've been having to export an STL or OBJ from fusion and open manually in Slicer. Not the biggest beef, but why write a plugin if it doesn't work?


    Guillermo Melantoni (Publisher) | May 16, 2017

    Hi Sean, 123D Make also resized by default to an object no bigger than 8 inches on the maximum side of the bounding box. Depending the type of object you are sending and what you are trying to do with Slicer, it avoids performance issues when someone applies a construction technique without having checked sizes. It has not been a big deal in Make since we added that option (probably around v 1.3). If it becomes an issue for many people, we can consider defaulting to real size. The other problem for that approach is that if the mesh is not coming from Fusion 360, we don't have a notion of units in the STL. Regarding the plug-in, this is the first report of it not working. Where does it fail? if you start a post in the forum we can follow up better. Or if not, just send me an email to guillermo.melantoni@autodesk.com Thanks!


  • fantastik
    Celil Bayar | May 13, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    its make easy to prototype


  • Install
    Christian Maury López | April 20, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Where are the instructions to install


    Peter Kiralj | May 06, 2017

    Did you select the 'Win64' button at the top? Because by default, it's set to macOS and what you download is a .pkg file which doesn't work on Windows.


  • Nice Add On
    Jeff Watkins | March 22, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I really like slicer and have many ideas bouncing around for it. I used it for a simple cardboard phone holder to test the cuts on a laser but I'm working on some projects for my CNC. Hopefully Nesting will be added to Slicer and updated in 123D Make to fit and rotate the nested pieces for more efficient material usage. Thanks!


  • Great addon
    Tilleddroy Tilleddroy | March 22, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    generates dxf files for laser cutting without going to cloud


    Jamie Bone | June 15, 2017

    Can't locate where to export as dxf. Instructions in the software are no help.


  • Great follow up and intergartion after 123Make
    Makairsjop Makairsjop | March 22, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I was worried about the future without the really great 123Make app, and glad to see that it is intregrated with Fusion 360. It models me from maker to proffesional user in the 3D world!


  • Great for laser cutting
    Chipgriffin Chipgriffin | March 10, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This is a great addon for making cardboard/wood mockups/models with a laser. One star off for the nesting. It could be more efficient.


  • I Love this app and I constantly use it.
    Ryan Cannon | March 01, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I cannot wait to see what comes next in the coming updates!


  • Way to go Autodesk
    Aadithya Sathya | February 26, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I come from Coimbatore , India and here we have lots of Pattern makers for Wood . Seriously this will be a very helpful tool from them .. I will post some models in the forums very soon after trying this app on a customer model .. Happy to know that Autodesk has created this ... Expecting lots from you Autodesk


  • thanks merci beaucoup
    Aissa Francois | February 23, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    fantastic add-on


  • Beautiful add-on
