Can Educational License use the new Plastic Function?

Hi all, 


Can Educational License use the new Plastic Function?

Such as Snap fit or boss, those function are very important for my product design students.

Hi  eduabbot,

Thanks for the question. Valid Autodesk Education Accounts can access many of the Fusion 360 Extensions including the Product Design Extension. To add an Extension, follow these steps.

  1. While in Fusion 360, on the top-right corner of the screen click on Extensions.
  2. In the Extensions Manager Dialog box, select the desired Extension.
  3. Then in the dialog box click Start Access. The following image shows the Nesting and Fabrication Extension.


  4. The Extension will now be available. Note that most of the extensions are available for 30 days. At the end of 30 days you'll need to repeat steps 1 - 3. This is the same experience that our commercial clients have. They can use extensions for the time period that they need.

Please let me know if this helps.

In addition to that make sure you go to the User Preferences and into the Preview.  Volumetric Lattice and the Design Assistant tools are both in PDextension but are preview and need to be activated I do believe.
