Running Fusion 360 on Mac OS Sonoma and M3 and M3 Pro chips

I tried chatting with support about this issue twice, they gave me chapter and verse out of the manual.   The problem is that the manual is inconsistent and not really clear on this question.

 

They wouldn't give me a yes or no answer on anything.

 

1    Will Fusion run on Mac OS Sonoma.  Has anyone else be successful with this.

2    Will fusion run on the new MacBook Pro M3 and M3 Pro machines?

@k.c.clark You can always check our system requirements - https://www.autodesk.com/support/technical/article/caas/sfdcarticles/sfdcarticles/System-requirement...

Fusion will come with full support for Sonoma very shortly per the system requirements. We already have. few thousand customers on Sonoma for the past few months. 

Regarding the M3, I have to check within my engineering team but Fusion should install and launch without problems. Will also let other customers on the forums confirm.

Any idea when fusion will be fully native? There are still things that require Rosetta. Like the Autodesk Identity Manager that likes to take up 16% of my CPU% sometimes.

@FrodoLoggins I honestly don't have an answer for that yet. I can follow up on that as well and update but I don't think there is a date of support yet for the Identity manager.

Thanks. I don't need a concrete date. Just a "soon" or "Can't share the date publicly but if things go as planned within the next X months/years".

I wish there was some clarity here.  

 

My HP Envy laptop is continuously crashing when doing an Arrange.  It's graphics chip isn't supported so I need to upgrade my computer soon.

 

I would very much like to get a new MacBook Pro.  If there are occasional non fatal glitches I can live with that for a while.

@k.c.clark 

"I wish there was some clarity here.". What is the clarity that you are looking for? Please note that the question @FrodoLoggins has asked is not related to Somona and M3 chips. 

What details are you looking for the exact clarity? If you are asking will Sonoma be supported with Fusion - yes. The official support is coming next week. If you are asking if 3 chips will be supported, most certainly. Would be good to understand what additional support are you looking for?

I still don't have an answer to the original questions.

 

If I buy a new MacBook Pro M3Pro. will Fusion 360 run on it ?

@k.c.clark @Yes, Fusion will work on that machine.
