I have a beginner question: Tinkercad is a fully cloud based and the STL files are/can be stored locally on our computer (STL files are not stored in the cloud). Fusion 360 is also fully cloud-based. However, I installed a Fusion360 client app on my pc. Is the app I downloaded just a client that communicates with the actual Fusion360 software via the internet connection?

Could I use Fusion360 without downloading that app and just via the browser as we do with Tinkercad? I feel like the client app on my computer I downloaded is quite slow.

Yes, you can use Fusion 360 via the browser without downloading. You just need Autodesk account. Here is the link.

However, if your computer was too slow for desktop app, you might also have problems via the browser.

  • $\begingroup$ Very well. I assume the Fusion360 client has some advantages compared to using Fusion360 only via the browser... $\endgroup$ Sep 24 at 21:37
