Anyone been using Fusion 360?

Just be cause you put 12 pregnant women in a room for 2.5 years DOES NOT mean you will ever have a child. (something like that anyway)

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.

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

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
