3D Printing Essentials

3D Printing Essentials

Digitally signed app



This add-in for Autodesk Fusion automates the steps for creating instances or creating duplicates of components in a design. Ideal for build preparation for additive manufacturing workflows, or if you are working with assemblies with multiples of the same component.


With this app you will have a new Duplicate Components command appears in the Design workspace, SOLID Tab, CREATE panel pull down menu, Pattern pull out menu. Once you launch the Duplicate Components command, you will be prompted to select a component. Note that you cannot select bodies within this command, and your model must have components to benefit from this app. After selecting a component, you can enter your desired number of copies, and control the location (same location vs arranging the copies along the X, Y or Z axis,) and the gap between the copies if you choose to arrange them along an axis.


There are 2 unique features of this app. First it allows you to create either instances of a given component, or independent components if you use the “Copy & Paste New method” when duplicating your components. Second it controls the Gap between the components in a unique way. The app first creates a bounding box around the selected components and controlling the distance between the duplicated components using the walls of the bounding box. With this option you can quickly arrange your components along any of the global axis more precisely.

Версия, 16.02.2024
Changes in this version : 1. Duplicate Components command is now available in the Manufacture workspace within the Additive Tab, but without the "Paste New" option. 2. A new Scale command is now available in the Manufacture workspace within the Additive Tab. 3. Both of these commands can be only be used for Additive setups that utilize a manufacturing model

  • Perfect tool to easily create multiple variants without using configurations
    Bas S | декабря 22, 2023 Проверенная загрузка (Что это такое?)

    Tip; combine this with the parametric text plugin ;)

    Nice-to-have suggestion:
    - being able to select multiple components to duplicate

    - being able to duplicate in multiple axis (like the review above, for 3dprinting, to fill a buildplate square)

    - being able to set the direction to duplicate (for example, duplicate on x is always to the left)

    Thank you Bas S for your 5* review! I really appreciate this and forwarded it to the dev team. Your suggestions are noted and also forwarded to the dev team. Happy new year and cheers, Fabian

  • Great App for duplicating & scaling parts

    Highly recommend it to anyone who needs to quickly make multiple copies of a given component for 3d printing, or scale a part within the context of their 3d printers build volume.
