Autodesk, AutoCAD, and Fusion 360 Engineer – Bryce Heventhal – Ep69

Bryce Heventhal is the Sr. Technical Marketing Manager for Fusion 360. He has 9+ years of CAD, FEA, and generative design experience, with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering. When he is not designing, he is out rock climbing.


Bryce started his career as an Applications engineer for a Solidworks reseller. He said that 80% of cases were installation issues and boring stuff.

CAD has come a long way over the years and we discuss how we both worked with old drawings to make 3D models. It amazes me that anyone could build a product at all before the modern CAD we have today.

Now Bryce works at Autodesk, specifically in the Fusion 360 technical marketing area, making tutorial videos on YouTube.

Fusion is a very interesting platform because it integrates with all the various Autodesk products. Solidworks only performs BREP forms. For example, if I receive a mesh file from a client, I typically must use a program like Blender first to get the polygon count to a manageable amount. In Fusion, you can work directly on mesh files and then go right back into traditional modeling.
