How to convert 3MF to Fusion 360?


PolyTrans|CAD+DCC performs mathematically precise CAD, DCC/Animation, GIS and BIM 3D file conversions into all key downstream 3D packages and file formats. Okino software is used and trusted throughout the world by many tens of thousands of 3D professionals in mission & production critical environments, backed by respectable personal support directly from our core development team.

     

3MF

3MF, 3D Manufacturing Format, is a modern replacement for the legacy STL (StereoLithography) file format with an explicit focus on the proper transmission of CAD and non-CAD model data for 3D printing as well as to downstream services and platforms. From Okino's long term perspective, the VRML2 file format was and is "just as good" for such requirements but never had the correct understanding nor traction since its introduction in 1995.

Features of 3MF over the legacy STL format includes: geometry instancing support, layered texture maps, multiple layers of UV texture coordinates, vertex colors and extended material types.

History, features, overviews, implementation partners and more can be read on the 3MF Consortiumís web site.

Note: Microsoft Windows uses the 3D Manufacturing Format (.3mf) for all 3D printing tasks.

Please also refer to the 3MF export converter for more information related to 3MF.

     

Fusion 360

Fusion 360 is a cloud-based CAD, CAM, CAE design software application, developed by Autodesk. It was first introduced in 2013. It has built-in capabilities to do 3D modeling, simulation and documentation. It can manage manufacturing processes such as machining, milling, turning and additive manufacturing. It also has electronic design automation (EDA) features, such as schema design, PCB design and component management.

Converting from Fusion 360 into Okino software can be handled by one of many file formats, such as: Autodesk Inventor .ipt, DXF/DWG, FBX, IGES, OBJ, SAT, SketchUp or STEP AP214. STEP is preferable.

Converting from Okino software into Fusion 360 can be handled in one of many ways, such as: FBX, Rhino .3dm, DXF/DWG (not recommended), Wavefront OBJ and SketchUp SKP.
