Additive manufacturing creates many opportunities for rapidly producing parts, although, like all manufacturing methods, it has its constraints. Due to these constraints (which can include overhangs, minimum detail size, build platform size, and more), it is important to design for additive manufacturing by considering the manufacturing method during the design process.
On that note, the Fusion 360 team has put together a guide that outlines some of the main rules to design parts for the additive processes. It also contains tips for how you can use Fusion 360 to design along with these rules.
In a nutshell, this document will help you produce successful prints while using Fusion 360. You can access and download the Design for Additive Manufacturing with Fusion 360 document by following this link.
