Arduino Fusion 360

2/15/2022by admin

I have taken the dive into Eagle CAD for the sole purpose of modeling Arduino boards so that I can use them in Fusion 360 to accurately model enclosures and cases.

  1. Arduino Fusion 360 Library
  2. Arduino Fusion 360
  3. Arduino Nano Fusion 360

Based on a GrabCad model I downloaded I've added material properties and decals for Fusion 360. Arduino UNO in Fusion 360 Format. November 1st, 2019. The UNO is the best board to get started with electronics and coding. If this is your first experience tinkering with the platform, the UNO is the most robust board you can start playing with. The UNO is the most used and documented board of the whole Arduino family.

  1. Fusion 360 generates the g-code, which you can then load into the g-code sender. To review, Fusion 360 generates the g-code from the model you want to cut. The g-code sender sends that g-code to the Arduino and acts as the human machine interface (HMI). Then the Arduino running Grbl software converts that g-code to motions on your machine.
  2. If you already have the Arduino design in EAGLE format, yes you can import it into Fusion 360. If it's already a lbr file, you can simply open it in Fusion. If you want to use Arduino as a part with other parts, you might want to 'New Electronics Library'.

I have sold method to get the board out of Eagle CAD (looks really sharp in Fusion 360 - see the attached image !) but I notice there are a bunch of warnings/ cautions when doing so because there are no 3D models tied to the export board.

Arduino Fusion 360 Library

I have the Eagle CAD files from this website, and I can clearly see from within Eagle CAD the libraries used but do not have a clue where those are located or if they can be shared. (See the screen shot of the libraries)

I have been trolling the web attempting to get 3D models from online stores (as an example: digikey) as well as the generic (free) offering from library iO. I’ve even looked up data sheets to get dimensions and created the Step files from scratch in Fusion 360. (The ATMEGA chip, LEDS and resistors are all hand made. The image I attached took over 3 evenings to complete (like 10 hours) and is still not complete. :’(

Are the 3D libraries available (that are Arduino exclusive or come from Arduino directly) so that I can complete this task in a more efficiently and focus on my project?
