Copper layers limitations of Fusion360 PCB software

I am a hobbyist and in the past I used Eagle (before acqusition by Autodesk) - at that time I had a permanent hobbyist license that allowed me to build boards with 4 copper layers. A quick search on Google produced a result indicating that free version of Fusion 360 support 2 signal laers and 2 power planes - does this mean that free version allows to build PCBs with 2 signal layers (top and bottom) and 2 internal layers for power and ground?

Appreciate your explanation!

Thank you,

--Alex

Hello @Alex6ELVB,

 

I hope you're doing well. Could you send me the link to where you saw this? That needs to be corrected.

 

Fusion personal has the same limitation as EAGLE free which is 2 copper layers. I don't know why the power planes is even mentioned in whatever source you found.

 

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.

 

Best Regards,

Hmm, I cant find that link - maybe I mixed up something. Anyway, thank you for the clarification!

Looks like I will stick with my old perpetual Eagle (before acqusition by Autodesk) license - it is old and not as advanced, but it is OK for hobby projects and gives me advantage of 4 layers for my hobbyist license :). Or maybe I will try my hands with KiCAD.
