Fusion360 Electronics - Some General Questions

Hi

 

I usually use KiCAD for and electronics I might do (very rare). Are there any pin/connection limitations for a hobbyist Fusion360 user - like Eagle had back in the day?

 

Secondly, I have come up against a wall with Kicad - I need to be able to either do a custom copper pad shape or a hatched copper pour - (is it called polygon pour if Fusion)? I am undertaking a reasonably dense capacitive touch PCB. Does Fusion have this functionality?

 

Lastly, does/will Fusion offer an import function for KiCAD files so users can cross over to Fusion.

Thanks

HI Docara,

Welcome to the Fusion 360 electronics, your participation is greatly appreciated.

Yes, Fusion 360 Personal license does have some board size and layer restrictions. 

2 Schematic sheets, 2 Signal layers, Max size 80cm 2 and 2 signal layers on the board

 

 


Secondly, I have come up against a wall with Kicad - I need to be able to either do a custom copper pad shape or a hatched copper pour - (is it called polygon pour if Fusion)? I am undertaking a reasonably dense capacitive touch PCB. Does Fusion have this functionality?


In the library editor, when custom pad shape are required, we recommend that you use a polygon above the pad. The PAD becomes the connecting point of the arbitrary pad shape. 

Fusion 360 polygon pour does support Hatch and Solid pours.

 


Lastly, does/will Fusion offer an import function for KiCAD files so users can cross over to Fusion.

 


I think it is being considered, but no time frame has been established.

 

Best Regards,
