Fusion 360 2020 Year in Review

“One of the things 2020 has taught us is that we are more resilient then we’ve ever believed.” 

– CEO Andrew Anagnost 

2020 showed us just how much good we can create when we come together and use the technologies available to us. It also showed us how connected we are and that the nature of work has evolved. More and more of us have adapted to ways of working remotely and with teams around the world. Our commitment to your success remained unwavering as we helped each other overcome challenges that we were all dealing with.  

Without skipping a beat, we delivered a total of 35 product updates in 2020. These updates included brand new workspaces, powerful new functionality, and tons of feature improvements, all of which contribute towards the 3 major areas of focus we’ve been working towards:  

Maturing Design & Engineering  Pushing what’s possible in Manufacturing Strengthening Data Management

We move so fast that it’s always good to slow down and look at what we accomplished last year. Here’s a quick look at 2020, the year in review. We can’t wait to show you what we have cooking for 2021.
