Student Can Access Autodesk® Fusion 360® Works From Any Browser

Di Jin, Account Manager, Autodesk Education Experiences, Autodesk®, announced at the February Shop Talk that Autodesk® Fusion 360® is now available as a web app for all students and educators — no download required. Jin has been an amazing resource to educators during COVID, according to Jeff Briggs, Regional Director, Advanced Manufacturing, North Region. “Di attends the Shop Talk to share updates and takes educators’ questions and ideas back to the Autodesk® team,” said Briggs.
Many manufacturing instructors use Autodesk® Fusion 360®, an integrated 3D CAD, CAM, and CAE tool, to prepare students with critical skills for employment. The company learned that as many as 600,000 students across California lacked computing devices for remote instruction, according to State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Tony Thurmond, at the California Department of Education.
Autodesk® announced: “In a move to promote equality of opportunity and access to technology, Autodesk is making Fusion 360 available on all devices with a modern browser. The move marks a continued push for accessibility in the Autodesk Education Community, following the widespread success of Fusion 360 for Chromebooks.”
To get started with the Fusion 360 web app, visit the Autodesk® website from any device with a keyboard (this excludes tablets and mobile phones such as iPads and iPhones), and log in using your educational account credentials. For more information, please visit the Autodesk® FAQ page.
