New Layer by Layer Tutorial! Exporting Projects in Fusion 360

In this tutorial I walk through the process of exporting in projects in Fusion 360. When it comes to saving projects out of Fusion 360, using the public share link can be a bit of a process. Saving projects locally seems like it would be straight forward (as long as you don’t have any linked components) but things aren’t as simple. So what about those projects with linked components? (That’s like every project for me!) Here’s how I fix my projects (by breaking links!) and save locally. As usual, CAD models (Yes, .STEP too!) can be found on github available here: Adafruit CAD Parts on GitHub.

The dreadful warning message I get when trying to save a project locally.

And yea, I know autodesk should make it easier for users to export projects with linked components. Chris Young posted workarounds for saving his projects. He also posted a request in the Fusion 360 Idea Suggestion site. Go vote and let them know you want this feature!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
