Are shop drawings and cut lists in Fusion?

Hi Everyone,


I've tried searching the forums and didn't see anything, hopefully I'm not repeating a previous question.


I've been using Inventor Fusion as a solid modeler to prototype wood shop projects. Everything from big book shelves and cabinets to small furniture pieces and trinkets. It's a beautiful modeling tool to show ideas to clients. I haven't been able to figure out how to translate those 3D models into 2D shop schematics or cut lists. Or even exploded diagrams.


Can anyone offer some thoughts out how to do that from Fusion?

We are working on shop drawings and hope to have a solution for you by mid-year. If you have a moment I am sure other would love to see the work you are doing. How about posting a picture?

Can't wait for a shop drawing feature, fusion is an easy to use and great modeler, but having it automatically take a project and split it up into a dimensioned shop drawing and cut list would be awesome!


I've attached an image export of the bookshelf. It's nothing really involved or intricate, I'm using fusion primarily for wood-shop prototypes, so there's not really a lot of mechanical interplay. It's just a nice, simple oak bookshelf I'm building for a client. I'd have attached a flyover, but I dont' think fusion exports those. So... here ya have it:
