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!

Fusion 360 Idea Station – Allow “save as” to local hard drive when design has linked components.

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, 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.

Join 35,000+ makers on Adafruit’s Discord channels and be part of the community!

Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
