Fusion 360 should model over cloud point of cloud our imported mesh, it would be nice also to import a solid like stl our obj an model over it, and grabbing some edges our points from the imported model from a cloud point for exemple

Status: Implemented
October 2013 update included import of mesh (obj and stl) and the ability to model over it with TSplines.

Agreed.  Fusion needs a type of snap tool in that if you dragged a surface up to other geometry (imported or native) it would reshape the geometry to match.  Like a vacuum form sheet over a pattern.  Better yet add dimensional driven off set option while your are at it.

As a workaround I loaded an OBJ file into Rhino, then converted it into a closed NURB surface and exported as a STEP file.

 

Then I dragged the STEP file into Fusion and waited for translation.

Worked a treat.

 

I can use facets of the Polymesh to create sketches, project onto sketches and also snap to while drawing on a plane.

 

Native OBJ import is the best solution but this workaround wasn't terribly time consuming.

Just a wallet hit for some in having to purchase Rhino :smileywink:

We totally agree. There is progress on this as we speak and we should have a solid solution by AU this year on this. What size/kind of models are you hoping to import?
