FreeCAD is a customizable, open-source paramentic 3D CAD and BIM software with FEM support, built on the Opencascade geometric kernel. It was created primarily for product design and mechanical engineering, but it can be used in a wide range of industries, such as electrical engineering, or architecture. It runs on Windows, Mac OS, and Linux.

FreeCAD is made to craft real-life objects of different sizes and is perfect for a home user/amateur, programmer, experienced CAD software user, or educator. This software provides tools similar to those of SolidWorks, Catia or Autodesk Revit.

Fusion 360 is a 3D CAD, CAM, CAE cloud-based platform by Autodesk, which connects the development processes of a product. Solid, Surface, T-Spline and Mesh geometry are supported as well as drawing, rendering and 3D-printed output for design validation and documentation. Fusion 360 runs on Windows, Mac OS and in browsers. It is mostly used by students of manufacturing and design spheres.

It is a collaborative platform where users can access each other’s files which shortens design lifecycle. As the app can run either on PC or on the cloud, it can work both with and without internet connection. Data management is built into Fusion.

Autodesk Fusion has a single model environment in which all unique parts and assemblies can be created. It incorporates both direct and parametric control. In Fusion users can make drafts, prepare designs for 3D printing as prototypes or as final parts. Fusion 360 includes integrated Assembly modelling, Motion studies, Rendering and FEA tools to help users analyse design before making it. As document management is built into the platform, files are automatically backed up to the cloud.
