Lonnie,
  I have been messing a bit with it.  So far I have used it to do some of the tutorials and then importing models.  I have found that it is quite the robust translator and has support for many of the native CAD types.  There have been a few examples where I have used it to read in Step files that SolidWorks choked on and then exported them to Step and then SolidWorks reads them fine.  I have also used the delete face function to remove fillets from model to then add draft and such.  The interface CAD interface is rather nice in a minimalist way.

I encourage you to give it a try.  There is a 90 day trial and if I remember correctly the monthly fee is $25.00US after that.

I saw it a few months ago and was pretty blown away by the ease of use and hyper-clean interface.  I will get an opportunity to dig deeper into it soon, but I am quite intrigued by what I've seen so far.

When will HSMWorks be integrated into it so I can work at home on my iMac and leave windows behind :)

Is there someone who I can ask some questions to about fusion 360?

I have some specific questions and could be easily answered by a phone call as opposed to several exchanges on the forum.

I assume there are not going to be 360 resellers to contact.

I can answer a lot of your questions about fusion 360. Happy to set up a call or get one of the product managers to speak with you

What I can't answer (only Anthony, Tom, Rene, etc can) is when HSMWorks will be integrated into fusion 360. That's what I'm waiting for

Thanks Carl,

I currently use SolidWorks, but have been watching some tutorial on Fusion and I really like the ability to run in from any location even my iMac :)

I just not sure how to change over or how well it will bring in solid works files.

I have some customers that supply me with solidworks files and I would like to be able to open them.  I have signed up to be notified about the HSMWorks Beta.  That is kind of a must for me as I don't want to design in Fusion just to import into SW for machining.

Is there going to be any way to create 2D drawings from the Fusion models.

If any one would like to contact me that would be great.  Any week day 6:00 am to 3:30pm EST

Thanks for your help.

On drawings from fusion, there will be a good answer before the end of the year.

Watch to see how cam 360 develops on top of fusion and try reading the solidworks models you get from your customers. The HSMWOrks stuff will be the same kernel.

I'll have someone reach out to you
