A360 Confused?

Early last week I was working in F360 (Fusion 360) and I ended up totally confused about my data storage options. So what did I do?  I could have tried chasing down articles on the Web and piecing together the truths and half-truths out there hoping to get it right, but instead I contacted our (D3) support team.  Low and behold, within minutes instead of hours, they had me straightened out.  You’re probably saying “It must be nice having the ability to ask a team of techs a quick question.”  Of course it is, but as many of you know our support line is op…

Spring 2017 Roadmap Update

Earlier last year it seems I was always referring people to the Fusion 360 Roadmap.  How cool is it that the Fusion 360 team not only took user feedback seriously, but also had a public plan of their features and improvements!  However, the months stretched on and the content got older and older.  There were things on the roadmap that were already released and ancient technology (in Fusion-time anyway) but still listed as upcoming.

Now, you could excuse me…

D3 Sales Team Renderings in Fusion 360

Boy, did I catch some flak for calling out our sales team on that last post! Words were said, things were thrown… To be fair, we do have a pretty great sales team. I just like to give them a hard time, as any good tech guy should. In order to appease them I’ve [willingly] agreed to share some more of their awesome Fusion work in the blog. In case you’re just catching up, some of the D3 sales team (who had never used Fusion 360 before) recently imported this SolidWorks model into Fusion 360 to give it some quick rendering love. Check out our last blog po…

Fusion 360, Your New...Marketing Tool?

Above image created with 10 minutes of work and <10 minutes cloud rendering One of D3’s marketing guys asked me this the other day: “Where are you getting all these stunning and inspirational Fusion images you’re submitting for the Blog?”  Well, ok, maybe I’m embellishing a little…  But he was sure there was some graphics database I was scouring for just the right image. The answer: Fusion 360! Most of the time I have such a specific idea of the image I’m looking for that even if there is a database of Fusion 360 or tech-related imagery out there, I’d…
