Moving from 123D to Fusion360 #CAD

Hey folks!

This week we’re making the transition from 123D Design to Fusion 360. We’ll take a look at our Github repo, which includes a lot of the 3D parts we’ve created over the years – mostly Adafruit and Raspberry Pi parts.

We’ll also take a look at how to import 123DX files into Fusion 360. Covering some basics like moving, panning, orbiting and zooming. Bonus: How to reset the pivot with multiple objects.

Let me know what you’d like me to cover on the next video, Thanks so much for watching!

PS: Huge shout out to Taylor Stein for pointing to Michael Aubry tutorial on the 123D Zip hack, which you can check out here:

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. NOO! i use 123d and really liked that you were using it too. but now ……

    wait! what file type does fusion 360 export? if its obj, SAT, smb, stp, step, or 123dx (i HATE editing stls) i can still use it. but also can you do that SAT to 123dx?
