    I am brand new to CAD and don't know much practical about what goes where and why. I think I should learn Fusion 360 first because that's free for me to download. I'm a member at Benicia Makerspace where they use both Fusion and SolidWorks.

    I have a couple of simple projects that will use OpenBuild components, so I figure the first step is to load the part models into whatever CAD software I'm going to use. So that's my question, can the OpenBuilds parts models be loaded into Fusion 360.

    Thanks for your help.

    Thanks, that's just what I needed. I saw that there are two file formats, IGES and SolidWorks and wanted to make sure I was using the right ones.
