September 18, 2023 - Fusion 360 Update is Now Available

The September 18, 2023, Autodesk Fusion 360 update is now available. This update is required for your students to maintain file compatibility. Here is a link to What’s New in this update.

 

You and your colleagues can opt in to receive email notification about Fusion’s updates that should be installed on lab computers.

 

IMPORTANT: Legacy operating systems including Win 8/8.1, Win 10 build 1803 or older, and MacOS 10.15 Catalina and below are no longer be supported. While old versions of Fusion 360 will continue to work on these operating systems until January 2024, to access the most recent Fusion 360 updates a minimum OS of macOS 11 Big Sur and Windows 10 (1809) or newer is required. By January 2024, any old version of Fusion 360 running on the non-supported operating systems will stop working.

If you are impacted by unsupported operating systems, we recommend accessing the online version of Fusion 360 which can be accessed through a web browser. Learn more.

Windows users:
Auto-Download for Windows users only – a time-saving process for updating Fusion Lab Installations. 

To ensure your lab version is consistent with the latest version available on students’ personal devices you now have the option to set up Auto-Downloads. Auto-Downloads for Fusion 360 automate the recurring ~8 weeks update process. Learn more about the benefits of Auto-Downloads for Windows users and the set-up instructions here - see section 6 (page 14).

Alternatively, manual installation and update for Fusion 360 in a lab environment remains available. Use the following instructions:

These instructions are for educational institutions that desire to install and use the program in a lab environment where Fusion 360 is installed.

Windows

  1. Download the Fusion Lab Install File.
  2. Open the text file and copy the text in the file and save with the name “FusionLabInstall.bat” into the same folder/directory as your Fusion Lab Install File.
  3. Launch the *.bat file from Windows Explorer, a command shell, script, or software distribution or management system.       

Mac

  1. Download the Fusion Lab Install Package.
  2. Double-click the downloaded file in Finder, or use your customary .pkg deployment mechanism.
  3. The executable will prompt for administrator privileges if it does not already have them.

Please let me know if you have any question.

Is there any chance that Autodesk can return this installer to the Class/Lab option when we go to this site?

This way, we won't have to browse forums and check every new update post to reinstall our software.

Hi @dowens2J2YQ 

Thanks for posting your concern. I passed your feedback to the team. 

You can opt in to receive email notification about Fusion’s updates that should be installed on your lab computers. An email is sent ~6 days before the update is release, and another email is sent when the update is available.

 

Thanks,

-Dan
