Creating and re-using Design Blocks


I see from the feature page that Fusion 360 Electronics includes also Design Blocks. 

Does anyone know how to create and use them?

Take a look at the PDF manual and search for the videos on the Eagle YouTube channel. I don't think that they are available in Fusion, only desktop Eagle.

I use them all the time and will say it is a bit convoluted - but works. Take a deep breath and practice/rehearse a number of times. Because it is not intuitive, I just use muscle memory to use them. In general, I only save the schematic data, but you can save the PCB layout data as well.

I already use them in Eagle, and they are quite important in my workflow this is why I was looking for this feature in Fusion 360.

I don't believe they are working in F360 right now.

For the moment - I cannot see myself doing any important work in Fusion Electronics - there are too many issues and omissions. Eagle is my only option while I monitor the progress of the Fusion efforts.

I am amazed that this does not work yet. I am totally new to Fusion 360 and PCB design. Autodesk pushed me very hard in the onboarding on the website to go to Fusion 360, yet the key feature (design blocks) is not available. Pitty

Is creating design blocks from within F360 still not a thing 3 years down the road?

Hi @mad.macs,


I hope you're doing well. Designblock creation as it was in EAGLE is not available in Fusion 360. The recommended approach is to use the insert Electronic Design feature in place of Designblocks.

Internally we are revisiting designblocks to fix the issues of the original implementation to provide something better. That's why designblocks as known in EAGLE are not available in Fusion.
