AUTODESK FUSION adds FATHOM SMARTQUOT PLUGIN to 360FAT

By | June 4, 2021

For those who want to 3D design or model, but rely on external 3D printing services to bring these digital models into the physical realm, 3D printing service provider FATHOM has come up with the Smartquote plugin, designed exclusively for Autodesk Fusion 360. is compatible with.

“A favorite of designers, engineers, students, established firms and startups, Fusion 360 represents the highest level of online collaboration and CAD/CAM software,” said Fathom co-founder Rich Stump. “We are excited to provide easy access to 3D printing for the entire Fusion 360 community.”

Using this fully embedded plugin will allow designers, engineers, and students to get a quote almost instantly on how much it will cost to print their prototype or product via FATOM.

And, with Autodesk Fusion 360, which unifies the entire product development process into a single cloud-based platform, users can automatically upload their files and receive a SmartQuote in minutes.

Within the Fusion 360 program, users can use the SmartQuote plugin to select materials, quality, and colors, before sending design information to FATHOM for near-instantaneous production.

Fusion 360 is a central component of Autodesk’s product innovation platform, which enables manufacturers and makers to build the things of the future,” said Stephen Hooper, Autodesk Senior Director, Manufacturing Industry Strategy.

“The integration with Fathom’s Smartquote gives engineers a powerful addition to Fusion 360 that helps bring their innovative ideas to the real world.”

As far as material capabilities go, users can get their quoted 3D printed parts manufactured with high quality FDM thermoplastics, PolyJet materials, and more.

Ultimately, the FATHOM Smartquote plugin will allow makers and designers to better plan for the cost of their efforts, helping them save time and money traveling through the digitally design-savvy universe of Autodesk Fusion 360.

The Fathom team is excited to announce the launch of a new partnership with Autodesk. Fathom’s SmartQuote platform is now fully integrated with Autodesk Fusion 360, which synthesizes the design, prototyping and production phases of product development.

“A favorite of designers, engineers, students, established firms and startups, Fusion 360 represents the highest level of online collaboration and CAD/CAM software,” said Fathom Co-Founder and Principal Rich Stump. We are excited to provide easy access to 3D printing for the entire Fusion 360 community.

Through the Smartquote plugin, users are able to easily quote and order 3D printed parts from fathoms.

“Fusion 360 is a central component of Autodesk’s product innovation platform, which enables manufacturers and manufacturers to build things in the future,” said Stephen Hooper, Autodesk’s senior director of manufacturing industry strategy.

“The integration with Fathom’s Smartquote gives engineers a powerful addition to Fusion 360 that helps bring their innovative ideas to the real world.”

Within Fusion 360, users can automatically convert their files, upload them via SmartQuote, and receive a quote in minutes. A wide range of materials, including high-performance FDM thermoplastics and Polyjet digital materials, are available to Fusion 360 users via the SmartQuote plugin.

“Users can also produce multi-material assemblies and other highly complex projects,” said Fathom Research Director Carlo Quinonez. “Previously, assembly required manual quoting – the plugin would streamline the development process and enable designers and engineers to move from digital concepts to physical parts more quickly and efficiently than ever before.”
