Fusion 360 Collaboration

Fusion 360 Collaboration

Collaborating and sharing in Fusion 360 is an absolute pleasure.  As everything resides in the cloud it is very quick and easy to share and collaborate anywhere in the world.  Fusion 360 projects files and folders are stored in your A360 account and you can make those projects available to anyone you wish just by inviting them with their email address.

The person being invited does need an Autodesk account.   In the email that they receive they will be prompted to create that account.

You can control what kind of access the user has.  Are they able to download or not.  Do they have access to edit or do they just have access to view.

The files that you upload through Fusion 360 does not necessarily have to be fusion files.  You can upload office files, emails, pictures.  Just about any file that you can think of.  If you upload any of these files in the below picture then Fusion 360 will convert them into files that you will be able to use and edit natively in Fusion 360.
