How to Export a STEP in Fusion 360

Fusion360 is a great platform for designing laser cut and sheet metal parts manufactured via our laser cutting service. Exporting your parts from Fusion360 as A STEP file is fast and easy, only taking a few seconds. After your files are exported you can upload them to our instant quoting platform to receive instant pricing for your laser cut or sheet metal parts.

Exporting Parts

  1. Since Fabworks accepts both flat and bent parts in step form there is no need to make a flat pattern for your sheet metal parts. Just ensure your bend radius and K-Factor is set according to our Sheet Metal Bending Service Guidelines.
  2. Navigate to the File Icon in the top left, and click “Export…” fusion-360-step-export-1.webp
