Fusion 360's Automated Modeling, a feature previously in technical preview, is now commercially available within the design workspace of the January Fusion 360 release. This powerful design tool automates the process of exploring new design concepts based on simple definitions of what to connect and what to avoid. Automated Modeling quickly generates design alternatives to connect existing geometries in your design. Adding one of the alternatives to your design, creates a parametric, solid body that is editable using the Timeline.
Using Automated Modeling speeds up the modeling process by suggesting different geometrical shapes that you can use to complete your design, or that you can use as inspiration for a final design. Its fast generation of various design alternatives lets designers identify design directions early in their design cycle when few constraints are known.
How to Access Automated Modeling
To access Automated Modeling, click the Design workspace > Solid > Automate > Automated Modeling automated modeling icon.
To get started, select two or more faces that you want to connect by generating a new solid body between them. Optionally, you can select solid bodies to avoid that represent areas where you want to avoid creating new geometry.
If the selected inputs are symmetrical, a symmetry plane is automatically created. This means that the new solid body will also be symmetrical about this plane.
Automated Modeling generates two types of design alternatives:
Both types are parametric so you can edit them in the Timeline.
Once alternatives are generated, you can also change the volume of their shape.
Just select an alternative and use the volume slider or appropriate icons to adjust its shape.
When you add a design alternative to your design, an Automated Modeling automated modeling icon feature group appears in the Timeline. You can double-click any feature in the Timeline to edit it directly.
The Automated Modeling automated modeling icon feature group depends on the type of design alternative selected and looks as follows:
In the timeline, you can find the following features:
|1. Base Feature||2. Form Feature||3. Boundary Fill Feature||4. Combine Feature|
