Hi

Short time ago I got update to my AutoCAD from 2010 to 2013. I got within the paket (Inventor fusion).
I did never use Inventor. I would like to know what is the difference between Inventor and Inventor Fusion?

Can somebody explain that to me or give me a link where I can find the good answer?

thanks

Let's see what the new updated "FUSION 360" has to offer.

 

The big question is:

 

Will Fusion ever replace Inventor??

 

Right now (before 360) it is pretty weak software, can't do anything too major on it. For that you need to model in Inventor. Inventor has features like iParts, Frame-Generator, Welding, Part-Assembly-Management, Surfacing, 2D Drawing Creation and many many other extra (necessary) features. Inventor is much more powerful and capable.

 

Will Fusion ever get to that level of capability and Inventor can be put aside?

The purpose of Fusion 360 is not to replace Inventor. There are things that Inventor can do that Fusion 360 cannot, and vice versa. As a designer I would use both tools as needed and take advantage of the strength of each to maximum advantage.

Hi I am trying to learn Fusion and am enjoying its potential so far, I used to love inventor. I would lile to create 2D Drawings from my fusion model. Is this possibel? do I need to use Fusion 360 instead?? If Fusion can do this it will be great. Thanks Glen

Fusion 360 will get the ability to make drawings later this year. Please send me and email and we will add you to the current Fusion 360 beta.

Yes this is certainly possible. However, it's much easier to keep all the work, modeling and assembling, in Inventor for what you want to do.
