What is an F3D file?
An F3D file is a 3D product design created in Autodesk Fusion 360, a cloud-based product design program. It contains a prototype of a tool, machine, part, or other meant-to-be-manufactured items. Fusion 360 users create F3D files when manually exporting a product design.
Autodesk Fusion 360 is a 3D industrial and mechanical design application that engineers use to design and test products. For example, an engineer might prototype a car with Fusion 360 before submitting the car to simulated motion, stress, and thermal tests.
Typically, you will share Fusion 360 designs with others via the app's cloud platform. However, you can also manually export a design by selecting File → Export... in the Fusion 360 menu bar (or exporting the file from Fusion 360's cloud platform). When you do, the design is saved locally as an F3D file. You can save and share your F3D files with others to provide access to designs in cases where cloud access is not available.
How to open an F3D file
You can open an F3D file in Autodesk Fusion 360 (cross-platform). For example, to open an F3D file in the desktop version of Autodesk Fusion 360, select File → Open... and then click Open from my computer.... Then, navigate to and open your F3D file.
NOTE: If you do not have an active Autodesk Fusion 360 subscription, the Open from my computer... button will not appear. In this case, find your F3D file, right-click it, select Open with... (or Open With on a Mac), and choose Autodesk Fusion 360. Your F3D file will open Fusion 360.
