Structural Member
Sistema operativo:


Structural member for Autodesk® Fusion 360™ enables the user to quickly insert standard structural members similar to Frame Generator in Autodesk® Inventor®.


The user can use this app with parametrically driven sketches. All Structural members will update in correspondence to the change of the parameter. An additional function has to be triggered to update the length value in the names of the structural member bodies.

  • Only works with standard profiles
    Josef Fröhle | novembre 30, 2023 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    I bought the plugin because I thought it worked great because I saw that there are videos on Youtube where it works with custom profiles. Unfortunately, it hasn't done that for me yet. On the other hand, the plugin is very CPU intensive, and my 32CPU still calculates 30 seconds+

  • Please fix
    Matt Davies | novembre 30, 2023 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    Having used this app for some time it is very powerful and great for quickly quoting a job. However since the lastest fusion update it is broken and consquently now doesn't work - Please restore it quickly. 

  • ne fonctionne pas correctement

    l'application ne fonctionne pas correctement. Les profilés ne suivent pas le dessin d'esquisse. Il se fixe sur l'origine et se superpose. Même ave une esquisse containte. Comment faire ?

  • Great Add-in but theres a huge Error for me
    Jonas Bauseler | novembre 22, 2023 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    Great App, but it somehow doesnt properly work with my version fusion?!

    After i create a new sketch and select the line i want the tube to be inserted on, the tube always appears in the origin of my drawing and thats it.....
    Is there any idea to fix it?

  • Solid add in with a few issues
    Scott O'Malley | novembre 07, 2023 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    I just downlaoded this a couple of days aga and it is a time saver and has the potential to be ver useful. There a few small issues that I have noticed so far, however it could be me just not knowing the proper way to use it. One being that if you try to cope a pipe then you are left with the cut off part with no way of removing it, if you try to just click and delete then you lose your whole cope. The other would be a way to edit the part after its made like you would with a feature in fusion, so if you needed to change the wall thickness or tube size you cant easily do that. 

    SCOTT BOLES | novembre 30, 2023

    Try using "Remove" instead of "Delete". Also if it is just an issue specific to round tube, an easy work around is to create a plane where the two pipes intersect and split the two bodies (Body 1 being primary part you want to keep and body 2 being the remainder you want to delete). Hope this helps.

  • structural member feedback
    LIN XAVIER | luglio 10, 2023 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    *When I imported the inventor assembly file and created a sketch to add the structural members the traceback error poped up, saying this is not a parametric design.

    *Also when I imported a step file and created a sketch to add the strutural members the same problem occured.

    *How can I edit the structural members?


    Dimitar Atanasov (Autore) | luglio 30, 2023

    For difficulties using Fusion 360, please avoid using the add-in-specific review page, and find the necessary information on the software help webpage. For any technical issues related to structural member-supported features contact the customer support team.

  • Good app for starters but with some restrictions
    Pascal P. | luglio 05, 2023 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    Good app but i have some problems with notching a square tube to a round stock/ pipe. Normaly ther should be no issues because the app is made for the exact reason but unfortunately the operation is denied for some reason. Can i upload some screenshots for troubleshooting?

    Thank you

    Hello Pascal, Thank you for the feedback. For any technical issues, please get in touch with the customer support team, where you can upload pictures.

  • Basic but it works
    Jacob Koeberlein | giugno 13, 2023 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    I was hoping for something with similar capabilities as SOLIDWORKS' weldment feature. This add-on does a pretty decent job, but some things do not work.

    - How can I edit structural members that I have already created? I am not able to edit these as I would with a normal feature.

    - How can I miter three structural members that meet at a corner? I am able to miter two of the members, but when I try another miter with the third member, it deletes one of the members.

    Overall, it's a great start, but I would love to see additional features and profiles. Thanks guys!

    Dimitar Atanasov (Autore) | luglio 30, 2023

    Hello Jacob, Thank you for your feedback. The edit feature is in the add-in roadmap. I will add it as soon as Fusion 360 releases the necessary API. You can refer to the add-in documentation for all supported secondary features. The miter of three members is not supported. For any technical issues please get in touch with the support team.

  • Pipes/tubes do not work
    Raphael Vogel | maggio 18, 2023 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    Pipes/tubes do not work at all.
    Neither meter, trimming or notching them does work correct. This restriction should have been documented! For me this software is not usable at all.

    Dimitar Atanasov (Autore) | maggio 27, 2023

    Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your detailed feedback. After carefully reviewing the file you shared, I identified that the mitre command encountered a rare exception where the midplane at which the two pipes should be mitred to was built at 180 degrees. No problems with the other two commands were detected. I tried redefining the sketch that was used for inserting the two pipes, and then the miter command worked as expected.

    I think this module is very good, but I still have a question. Is it possible to set the radius of the outer corners of the square tubes HSS_SCF to zero?  is there a possibility?

    Dimitar Atanasov (Autore) | aprile 11, 2023

    Thank you for your feedback. Yes, custom profiles with a 0mm radius can be added.

  • Great App
    Lukas Friedrich | gennaio 17, 2023 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    This is the app, i was waiting for.

    The only thing, i'm missing, are solid flat and round profiles. Are they comming soon?

    Dimitar Atanasov (Autore) | gennaio 26, 2023

    Hello Lukas. Thank you for your feedback. We already have flat bars in the GB standard. The database files are accessible by the user, so you can copy these and modify them to your requirement. ( XX 10.0 FB 3.0 FB 10.0 FB 3.0 0 0 0 0 0 0 ) xx- name your flat bar As for the round bar, you can copy any pipe standards and modify them, so the wall thickness is half the diameter (-0.01). ( XYX 21.3 H 10.649 PIPE 21.3 0 10.649 0 0 0 0 0 0 ) XYX - name your roundbar. If you have trouble adding these contact me by email, and I will assist you.

  • Lenght
    Valter Pereira | gennaio 11, 2023 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    Hello! When performing a lenght update, it does update in the name of the body but not int the name component.

    Is there some update for this? I would like the lenght in the name component so that way will appear the correct information about the lenght when creating the drawing  or when making a BOM with "Properties++" (Addin).


    Dimitar Atanasov (Autore) | gennaio 12, 2023

    Hello Valter. Thank you, your feedback is much appreciated. It was done like that on purpose, some users prefer to change the name of the component, but I guess I can add a checkbox for those who want to update both the component and body name with the length update feature.

    Valter Pereira | luglio 26, 2023

    Hello! I was wondering if the app will update so we can continue to use it in the new version of Fusion 360 2023? And wil the next update add the checkbbox so it can update both the component and the body name with the lenght?

    Dimitar Atanasov (Autore) | luglio 30, 2023

    Hello! Yes, there will be an update along with the Fusion 360 autumn major update.

  • Great Plugin
    Julian Grimm | giugno 26, 2022 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    It´s a great plugin that helps a lot. What i was wondering though, do you still plan to make use of the new API, to create custom features? It would help a lot, to be able to edit already created profiles.

    Thanks for your time and effort!

    Dimitar Atanasov (Autore) | giugno 27, 2022

    Hi Julian. Thank you for the feedback. Yes, that is the plan. Unfortunately, that feature is still under development.

  • Great! Just one question
    Gustavo Bore | febbraio 16, 2022 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    Hi Dimitar,

    Thank you for such a great tool. I just have one question. How do you modify a previously selected profile, after the command is done? For example, I first selected a W beam, but then i'ld like to change it to a hollow square section. Is it posiible? Or I just have to delete the body resulting from the first extrution to generate a new one?


    Thank you!

    Dimitar Atanasov (Autore) | febbraio 18, 2022

    Hi Gustavo, Thank you for the positive review and feedback! The only way to edit at the moment is by deleting the commands used to create the structural member ( you can also delete the body, but that will only make your model a bit slower when editing other commands, as it will compute the insertion and the deletion after that). Fusion 360 is constantly improving and at the moment they have a new feature custom command edit which is in preview state, once they release that feature I will be able to use it to enhance the structural member and get the option to edit the inserted members.

    Awesome work just a small issue which may be my fault.

    I am struggling to add round bar into the standard shapes and standards.

    I've managed to add it to the custom shapes but can only add one sketch line at a time and have to click OK after each add. When I then re open it the previous shape isn't selected like a standard structural member. Could you help me please if possible.

    Dimitar Atanasov (Autore) | gennaio 04, 2022

    Hello David, Thanks for the review. Could you send more details of your issue to the customer support email address? One small note: Fusion 360 has a useful and quick command named Pipe for inserting round and squire profiles.

  • Great addin
    Matthew Keen | luglio 24, 2021 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    Just what we've been waiting for auto desk to produce for years! Great addin makes frame work so much easier. If I could make a suggestion for future updates, it would be to be able to create drawing from design and be able to create a table for the parts ie a cut list for fabrication. Unfortunately at the moment it sees every part as different as they are I guess.... not copies. 

    But all in all a great product

    As mentioned by other reviewers this is an excellent addition to fusion360 - as a hobby fabricator this is a life saver and makes frame fabrication easy!

  • A must have add in for fabricators and designers!
    Garret Hunter | gennaio 27, 2021 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    I've spend a total of 5 minutes with this app and can already say that it is a godsend. This adds some features to fusion that it was desperately lacking.  

    I'll come and do a more thorough review after spending some time working with this.

    A few quick comments:

    • Interface could be more intuituitive, the Notch members command had me guessing which member to click first.
    • The cut list export is great but exports length as "L=xxx" in the cells. This means I can't use excel tools like sum until I edit the cell to remove the "L=" 
    • I do work with metric and imperial T-slot frame profiles and it would be great to have those too.
    • Bolted connections would be nice as a future item.

    If possible add the keywords "frame generator" to the store listing. I initially searched for that and almost missed this app.

    Dimitar Atanasov (Autore) | febbraio 06, 2021

    Hello Garret. Thank you for the review and the feedback. The latest update is the app store and the interface of the notch command is amended, and the L=xxxx is removed from the length cells in the cutting list feature.

  • Great plug in
    Matt Von Derau | gennaio 07, 2021 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    I wish there was an option for half stars. This plug in has shaved hours off of my work load. If it wasnt for having to do some creative work arounds to get things just the way i need them, and the lack of more of the common wall thickness used in the US for smaller tubing it would easily be a 5 star plug in. 

    EDIT: changed to 5 star because the developer added the changes I was hoping he would! I use this EVERY day and it has saved me countless hours of work. 

    Adding smaller than 2x1" tubing, and lighter wall thickness's like .065, .083 and .095 would be awesome. 


    Overall, time is money, and this plug in has saved me a ton of time in design work!

    Dimitar Atanasov (Autore) | gennaio 08, 2021

    Many thanks for the review, Matt. I am happy to hear that the plug-in has saved you time in design work. Send me an email with all the tube sizes that you require, and I will make sure to add them to the library in a future update.
