Those of you that installed and used the Fusion 360 beta (Dec. 16 - present), we will be closing the beta Jan 31. We are extremely grateful for all the feedback we received. We had over 200 people in the beta and was able log and fix over 400 defects due to your efforts. Thanks for all the help!!!

 

If you have any data from the beta that you would like to keep, please follow the following steps to export it from the beta build. 

 

  1. Launch Fusion 360 Beta
  2. Open the design you want to export
  3. Select the hamburger button (yep you heard right, some say its the technical term for the three bar icon on left side of the application)
  4. Select Export Archive

Rinse and repeat on any other designs you want exported. Then you can import them into the production version of Fusion 360. 

 

We will be closing the beta Jan 31 so be sure to pull your data before that.

How do I delete the Fusion 360 Beta without deleting the Fusion 360 release version?

I think is just going to the “Control Panel”, “Programs and Features”, and select the Fusion Beta and uninstall. And if you have to uninstall the release version, you can fastly install it back again.

Are you using Windows or a Mac?

In Win7 go to uninstall programs in Control Panel and uninstall the Fusion 360 Beta.  The production program is separate.

Yes, sorry, I should have stated, I am on a Mac.

 

I have both the production version and beta version loaded. When I look in Library/Application Support/Autodesk it is not clear which files belong to the beta and which to the production version.

If you select Launchpad in the Dock you should see an icon named something like "Remove Autodesk Fusion 360 [Fusion Beta] that you can select and it will remove the beta version.

Thank you. That worked.

 

A note for future releases, however. In the Launchpad dock the icon was clearly labeled to remove the beta. But when you click on it, the uninstaller program that runs says only that it is uninstalling Fusion 360. It says nothing about the beta. I had to trust that I had clicked the right thing and that it was going to uninstall only the beta. It seems to have worked fine, although it was a bit unnerving.
