    With that, the Tinkercad team is excited to announce the release of the Send to Fusion 360 (beta workflow), enabling users to take any design created with the basic primitives from Tinkercad directly to Fusion -- simply with a click of a button!

    Our community has built amazing creations with Tinkercad, and now you can extend those designs by sending them directly into Fusion 360 as solid models. That’s right - native Tinkercad designs extendable with Fusion 360 workflows!
