Imagine the new and exciting ideas you can create using Autodesk Inventor Fusion technology to bring your designs to life. This new, 3D CAD modeling software enables creation of designs through intuitive direct manipulation and easy to understand design tools.
•2D Sketching: Start your designs by using simple 2D sketch tools. Control sketches with dimensions. Create 2D layouts from which you can create multiple shapes fast.
•Direct Modeling: Push – pull and edit your way to your final desired result. Direct modeling means you can focus on your design task and not on complex modeling commands and dialogs. Autodesk Inventor Fusion technology is a history free 3D design tool.
•Assembly design: Assemblies that mimic the real world makes positioning and moving your design fast and predictable. Designing in context means you have all the right information to make design decisions. Flexible assembly structure ensures you can change your mind at any time.
•Real Time Visualization: Beautiful 3D and fast real-time navigation make creating and presenting your design easy.
•Cloud Storage: Store and Share your designs using Autodesk 360 collaboration service. Use Webgl enabled browsers or Autodesk Viewers for IOS to view your designs when on the go.
•AutoCAD® Compatibility: Autodesk Inventor Fusion Technology is compatible with other Autodesk® software products, making it easy for you to read files from colleagues and clients.
•Translators: Read SAT, STEP, DWG and Autodesk Inventor Files. Share data as STEP or STL. STL output means you are ready to use the growing number of 3D printers and printing services.

What's New in Version 1.2
Stability and Bug fixes.
We have corrected an issue which caused the application to crash when opening certain files. These files should now open correctly.
Perfect when not crashing / Perfeito quando não trava
This software is very good when it doesn't crash. You can draw almost anything and it's very fast to learn how to use it. The major problem is that it crashes almost everytime you open it, when you're drawing, when you attempt to open some saved files. Another issue is the Autodesk support. They don't do anything. I'm whaiting for 3 months for a reply, and nothing until now. Because of this, I'm giving it 1 star here. But this software could be very good if this problems are fixed. I realy don't know why Apple aproved this software. It's so buggy.
Este programa é muito bom, quando não trava. Você pode desenhar quase qualquer coisa, e é muito fácil aprender a usá-lo. O grande problema é que ele trava quase toda vez que é aberto, quando desenhando, ou quando você tenta abrir alguns arquivos salvos. Outro problema é o suporte da Autodesk. Eles não fazem nada. Estou aguardando uma resposta deles há mais de 3 meses e ainda não recebi nenhum retorno. Por causa disso, dou uma estrela nesta classificação. Contudo, este programa pode ser muito bom se os bugs forem corrigidos. Eu realmente não sei como a Apple deixou este software entrar na App Store com tantos bugs.
It looks so good, and it wants to be awesome. But it's a pity that in order to draw a regular polygon, I have to do it line by line…with no way to apply circular patterns to line objects. A polygon tool USED to be in here. That's one small example of the many gotchas. You'd better have drawn your project exactly dimensioned on paper before you reach for the mouse, because for all the effort to make this seamlessly parametric, trying to move several lines in a sketch makes things go nuts. The ability to dimension between two arbitrary points, or the ability to create construction lines in a reasonable manner…such things are required before you can legitimately call it a CAD tool.
That is why this is free. It's pretty, but is still a toy. It will not save you time compared to your rusty old copy of AutoCAD 2000. When this software is ready, it's going to be awesome though.
Great for beginners
Love the app so far. Modeling is fairly full fetured. Beginners will find it pretty easy to use especially since its mostly mouse work and little keyboard knoladge is necisary. I do recomend a number pad on your keyboard. Typing in values with a laptop keypad will be frustrating.
My only complaint is there are almost no keyboard shortcuts.
