If you're a teacher in the Bay Area, and your students use Fusion 360 in your class - read on. As you might know, while Fusion 360 is very flexible, it doesn’t run on Chromebooks (and some older computers). With a number of students only having access to such computers, this might be an issue for a few of them. If so, we might have a solution.

We’ve been working with the community colleges Netlab project, along with Autodesk, to host Fusion on a VM (virtual machines) that allows someone to use their computer as simply a monitor and input (mouse/keyboard) device. All the computations are happening in the “cloud”.

If you have students that might need this access to Fusion, please have them fill out the form below and we'll get back to them with the sign-in information. We're still testing this out so please bear with us and let us know if you have any questions.

Note: Students still need to sign up for a Fusion account at the Autodesk website.
