Updates and File Compatibility

Last update released for ECN - 10/16/2018

Next update to be released on or after [to be announced]

 

Autodesk releases periodic updates for Fusion 360 which are not automatically installed in our

environment.  The minor updates are not required, however the major updates are mandatory and released

every 6-8 weeks.  Typically, the major updates modify the file format for Fusion 360 models.  If a file is modified

on a system with a newer version of Fusion 360, there is a chance that it will not open on a system with an older

version.  If you have the latest Fusion 360 package installed, there should be a shortcut in the start menu labeled

"Fusion 360 -Check for Updates".  Clicking this will check what version of Fusion 360 your computer has installed

and what update we have made available to our systems.  You will then be prompted if you want to apply this

update.  The update can take between 5-15 minutes depending on network congestion and the speed of your

computer.
