Have the same problem. Making some relatively simple parts to try out 3D printing and after I put a few fillets around everything the two files I was working on give me the spinning beachball of death after saving and trying to restart later.
Was very worried as I put some time into the parts (learning mostly) and thought everything may be gone as the problem is repeatable. My work was being done on a 2.7Ghz i7 macbook pro 15" retina display with 16gb memory, 768Gb SSD and driving a 30" cinema display. Luckily I have a mac mini with considerably less power/memory and it is able to open the files so I am not up the creek totally.
Any tips very appreciated, I would like to use my macbook as it is much more powerful than the mini but it just won't open the files it saves after a certain point. Cheers.
Thanks for sharing this file, we'll analyze your model, then try to find the reasons.

Same problem here. I was working on a project, when i came back latter that day and reopend it i was unable to open it without inventer crashing. I have a MAC retina. I wont complain because it is free software and **** good software at that! no hate. but a fix would be awesome.
Great that you are searching for a solution to fix this.
Fact is that IF for Mac is unusable on my machine because of this crashes...
I too am seeing consistent crashes (especially when opening a saved file). I am running Mountain Lion 10.8.2 on my 8GB MacBook Pro w/retina display. The crashes only occur when opening .f3d files. If I export the models to .step .stp or .sat files they open fine. Additionally if I try to open the .f3d file that _doesn't_ work on my retina laptop with my wifes Mac Mini (running Lion) it opens fine as well. I have submitted a fair amount of bugs through the always appearing crash dialog
I have attached a quick model I created on my laptop that will crash Fusion every time I try to open it. I also have attached a .sat file that was exported from the original model (while I was creating it) that opens without issue but is missing dimension info. Since the forums webapp here won't allow them named as such, I have appended .txt to the file name.
Fusion was saving and opening successfully on 10.7 Lion. The first 5-10 files I made work fine, but anything I save now will not open again. A lot of work simply lost if they can't be resurrected. I'm on a mac 5,2. Attached a new file that was saved but won't open again.
I moved to a newer desktop, same operating system (10.7.5) and downloaded the app. It opened the file without a problem. It is a MacPro Desktop 5,5. I'll see if it eventually has the same issue.
Same problem : with a very simple file (5 little box with joints), the software is crashing when loading the file (the software freezes without giving up the control)
I could provide 3 files that make it crash.
I am running on a Mac Book Pro 2011, Mac OS X 10.8.2, 8Gb of RAM.
