Sneak peek of new OpenBOM add-in for Autodesk Fusion 360

I’m super excited to share with you news about the new OpenBOM add-in for Fusion 360. We’ve been working closely with many OpenBOM users and learn what to improve in OpenBOM for Fusion360.  Here is a shortlist of new things that will be coming very soon. 

1- New compact user interface. We understood how important to put more information in the screen and hence new user experience gives you more layout, smaller controls, fonts by default. 

2- Full support for Fusion360 versioning mechanism also for use cases with Bill of Materials coming from multiple Autodesk Fusion 360 designs. 

3- Support for Autodesk Fusion 360 Bill of Materials in the drawing. Even BOM in the drawing is limited for the moment, you can automatically generate an image of the BOM and place it on the face of the drawing. More support will be coming soon. 

4- Integration with Autodesk 360 viewer. From now, OpenBOM includes links to A360 cloud storage where you can get view access to the Fusion360 design. It is an extremely important capability that will allow getting seamless access to the viewer when OpenBOM sharing the Bill of Materials out of Fusion360. 

5- Improved support for templates including templates for BOM, Catalog and Drawing. This feature allows you flexible manipulation of data and will allow you to configure what data goes where… 

The following video below shows you a short video demonstration features I mentioned above. 


New OpenBOM add-in for Fusion 360 is a result of long and dedicated work with Autodesk users, learning about needs and requirements for OpenBOM add-in improvements. The new version is coming soon, please stay tuned. 

OpenBOM Add-In for Autodesk Fusion 360 is FREE and it is available with any OpenBOM subscription today 

Best, Oleg @ openbom dot com.
