Generative design. Advanced simulation. 5-axis machining: until now, Autodesk’s advanced Fusion 360 capabilities have only been available to subscribers of Fusion 360 Ultimate, but this is about to change. From October 7th, there will be one Fusion 360 subscription at one simple price of USD $495 per year.

Customers will no longer have to choose between the Standard and Ultimate tiers of Fusion 360. With this new commercial offering, they can take advantage of Fusion 360’s generative design, advanced simulation and advanced CAM (3+2 and 5-axis machining) capabilities – all within a single, seamless ecosystem. It’s important to note that cloud credits will be needed to run generative design and advanced simulation studies; more information on Autodesk cloud credits can be found at:

Fusion 360 uses artificial intelligence to generate design solutions based on engineering goals and constraints. It puts the ‘aid’ back in computer-aided design by letting designers evaluate the tradeoffs between manufacturability, materials and performance so they can choose the solution that works best for them.

Generative design has come a long way from its R&D roots and has been used by the likes of General Motors and Stanley Black & Decker but it doesn’t stop there. The advanced simulation and machining capabilities that were previously limited to Ultimate subscribers are solutions that can bring value to all professional users of the Fusion 360 platform.

Paid subscribers of the Product Design & Manufacturing Collection can take advantage of these new benefits because Fusion 360 is already included in their existing PDMC subscription. Through AnyCAD technology, they can leverage these advanced Fusion 360 capabilities with the ability to use their data in Autodesk Inventor, or whatever CAD environment they’re most comfortable with.

To reward its current paid subscribers of Fusion 360 Standard who have subscribed to Fusion before 7th October, Autodesk is allowing them to maintain their subscription at the current price for as long as they’re a Fusion 360 subscriber. By simply renewing (or keeping their auto-renew on), they’ll stay locked in for the long haul.

Existing Fusion 360 Ultimate subscribers with paid subscriptions will now enjoy all the same functionality and generative design at a more accessible price. More information can be found at the link below.
