Fusion Users: Collaborate with Your Team Using A360

Hey Fusion users! In this series of posts, we’ll be showing you how to collaborate with your team using the powerful capabilities of A360 available to you within Fusion 360.

As you may have noticed, all of your Fusion 360 designs are located within specific Projects. Not only does a project allow you to organize your designs, but it can also serve as a single central repository for your team. Need to track design changes, organize calendar events, or update everyone on your progress? Simply use the capabilities built into A360 projects! Today, let’s take a look at how to create new Projects from within Fusion 360.

After working on a design in Fusion 360 and making your first save, you’re prompted to choose the Project to save it in.

To save your design in a new project, select ‘+ Project” from within the Save dialogue window. Enter a name for your new project, and complete the save!

To access your new project within Fusion 360, click on the Open Data Panel icon blog43 in the upper-left corner. The Data Panel will slide out, and you’ll see an organized view of your data. The current project being viewed is listed at the top of the Data Panel. To navigate to your recently created Project, click on the name of your current Project and select your new project from the drop-down menu. (Note: If your project cannot be found, you may have to click the Refresh button blog44.To invite collaborators and view project members, simply click on the Project Members icon blog45. If you’d like to add a collaborator to your project, simply enter the e-mail and click Invite!

Lastly, want to import some existing 3D data into Fusion 360? All you have to do is click the import icon 5.png from within the Data Panel and select your file(s) from your local drive! Your CAD data will be imported and translated into a file type that Fusion 360 can work with. Take a look at the list of file types that can be imported!
