  3. choco install autodesk-fusion360

  5. If any problems (missing shortcuts etc), you can go here and directly re-run the installer:
  6. Upon opening, it should login to your Autodesk account and give you access to your files on Autodesk 360
You might also try

    1. Haha great question. I mostly wanted to get the word out about Chocolatey - its a nice, clean way to quickly and easily install popular software, basically like a linux package manager for Windows. I searched the catalog and there were packages for Fusion 360 and Sim 360, hence the post :)
