Marc Schomann a developer of Blackbox Open Source Tool Changing 3D Printer is using Autodesk Fusion 360 and OpenBOM. The team designs entirely with Autodesk Fusion 360 then captures product structure, item, and vendor information using OpenBOM’s purpose-built Fusion 360 Addin where they create and maintain all the related Catalogs and Bills of Material for the project. Later, the team shares it all to the open-source community using OpenBOM’s powerful Share function – there are no Excel files or emailing of designs here – it’s all in the Cloud with Fusion 360 and OpenBOM!
“Our distributed team used OpenBOM to capture product structure and assembly and part data from Autodesk Fusion 360 then create bills of material for purchasing the components we needed to build the printer,” Marc said. “The OpenBOM Fusion 360 integration made it easy to create and update BOMs and Part Catalogs and to identify and specify vendors as the design moved forward.”
