01 - How To Get The Recommended Software

Recommended Posts

F1 in Schools Car Design Software - Fusion 360

We recommend the use of Autodesk Fusion 360 for design of F1 in Schools cars. The software is supported by special F1 in Schools tutorials. You can get free licenses of Fusion 360 for student and teacher use along with classroom license sets if required.

In August 2021, Autodesk made changes to help simplify the process of students obtaining their own personal Fusion 360 education license. Teachers sign up through the new system and then have the ability to issue licenses to their students.

Advice for Students - as a student, the simplest and quickest way to get an education license for Fusion 360 is to have a teacher from your school sign up and follow the instructions for educators to be able to get multiple licenses, which they can then easily assign to students. If you don't have a teacher that can do this for you, you can still apply for the education license individually, but it may take longer to complete - CLICK HERE

Advice for Educators Watch the following video to learn more about the new process and how to access licenses for your students. Then visit the Autodesk Education Community to check or validate your educator eligibility - CLICK HERE
