If you're looking for an advanced software program for realizing 3D objects, Autodesk Fusion 360 is an important solution to take into consideration. It offers plenty of tutorials, guidelines, and tips to help you in the modeling process, along with numerous powerful tools and complex functions.

The interface is very intuitive, has a nice color theme and comes with innovative menu icons, that are well-crafted. Still, it would've been nice to have more selection themes and better time response to user actions.

With Autodesk Fusion 360, you can iterate on design ideas with sculpting tools to explore form and modeling tools to create finishing features.

You can also easily store your work in progress to the cloud account, created at the first start of the program. Other included capabilities include graphics parameters, sample scripts, and many tutorials and preset parameters.

Moreover, you can add textures, light, colors or calculate angles. In addition to that, users can use bolt connectors, multiple load cases, and rigid elements in simulation tests by simply removing faces, and replacing with primitives.

The main downsides are the exorbitant price, the high use of system memory, the cryptic error messages and the lack of functionality from 3D rendering.

All things considered, Autodesk Fusion 360 is a software solution that offers the tools to help users express their creativity into 3D modeling. It may not be cheap, but it does worth a shot.
