As we move into the future, it's important that product development tools move along with us. Fusion 360 is Autodesk’s integrated platform for taking a product through it’s initial design, simulating its use, and preparing it for manufacturing. It brings all of these steps together on one cloud-based platform for teams to collaborate like never before.

Our goal is for as many students as possible to try Fusion 360 and build something you might actually 3D print and use in your dorm room. So whether you're a CAD software veteran or this is your very first time creating a 3D model, we'd love to see your work! Students get free* access to Fusion 360 and it's available on Mac or PC - so download it now and start designing today.

Announcement: The challenge has been extended and will now close on Sunday 3/20.
