Autodesk Fusion 360 Uses Dassault Systemes V6 Cloud Infrastructure

As I wrote in my blog post yesterday, Autodesk Fusion 360 isn’t a browser based CAD system. You need to install a piece of software locally on your computer which then works with the data residing on the cloud. So its “cloud-based” CAD system.

What Exactly Is 3DEXPERIENCE?
