I want to know if Inventor Fusion is free for commercial use as a standalone application.

Thanks for replying, yes I know about Fusion 360 but this is for 64 bits and I have 32 bits. So Inventor fusion will continiue through the years as 2013?,  can use it with no other application or I have to buy Autocad license? Autocad is to much expensive I can not even afford it.

Strictly speaking, yes. However it is retired and further development, i.e. new versions are not planned.

 

Have you seen Fusion 360? This is the next generation CAD tool based on Inventor Fusion. It comes with many new capabilities, most notably T-Splines surface modeling tools. It installs in minutes, so you can work anywhere. It's cloud based so anyone in your production path can benefit from the data. Right now it's in preview, here.

 

Thanks,

IF IT IS FREE, HOW DO I DOWNLOAD IT?
IT WAS AVAILABLE WITH OUR EARLIER PRODUCTS, NOW WE HAVE UPGRADE (UNDER SUBSCRIPTION) WE HAVE LOST 6 LICENCES.
WE DO NOT USE THE CLOUD AS OUR CLIENTS DO NOT ALLOW IT, SO 360 IS NOT THE ANSWER, PLUS THERE IS A MONTHY CHARGE.
OR ARE AUTODESK SAYING WE HAVE LOST THESE LICENCES BECAUSE WE PAY SUBSCRIPTION?

Yes you can. You may want to do a backup to your system that can restore it completely. If you ever accidentally uninstall it, there will not be a way to replace it otherwise.
