Autodesk CAM Repackaging of PowerMill, PowerShape & PowerInspect

As Autodesk continues to grow their MAKE portfolio of products, it’s important that they acknowledge the existing changes broadly with technology in the design and manufacturing industry today. As such, Autodesk will be repackaging PowerMill, PowerShape and PowerInspect under the Fusion 360 brand. This packaging change provides you access to greater tools across design and manufacturing. See below some common questions we have been asked:


What is included in the new Fusion 360 repackaged offerings?

  1. Fusion 360 with PowerMill Standard. Included: PowerMill Standard, Fusion 360, Fusion 360 Team, Fusion 360 Machining Extension & HSM Works.
  2. Fusion 360 with PowerMill Ultimate. Included: PowerMill Ultimate, Fusion 360, Fusion 360 Team, Fusion 360 Machining Extension, Fusion 360 Additive Build Extension & HSM Works.
  3. Fusion 360 with PowerShape. Included: PowerShape Ultimate, Fusion 360, Fusion 360 Team & HSM Works
  4. Fusion 360 with PowerInspect. Included: PowerInspect Ultimate, Fusion 360, Fusion 360 Team, Fusion 360 Machining extension & HSM Works.

What is the Fusion 360 – Machining Extension & the Fusion 360 – Additive Build Extension?

The Fusion 360 – Machining extension will be split into two extensions to separate the existing machining and additive capabilities. You will be able to access this technology according to your existing product offering when it becomes available.

Are PowerMill, PowerShape, or PowerInspect an entitlement to Fusion 360?

No. Specific tiers of these products are only available within the four new offerings mentioned in the first question. You cannot subscribe to a standalone version of Fusion 360 and receive an entitlement to any tier of PowerMill, PowerShape, or PowerInspect.

I’m an existing PowerMill/Powershape/PowerInspect subscriber, when will I move to the new offerings?

From September 14th, 2020 existing named user subscribers will be migrated by Autodesk to the equivalent new Fusion 360 with PowerMill/PowerShape/PowerInspect’ offerings.
