Fusion 360 black toolbar

Fusion 360 black toolbar DEFAULT

Hi Nathan


Apologies for the delay in getting back to you. I really appreicate you taking a look into this issue for us.


I'm able to reproduce @zaren7F6EY test case. I've been able to replicate the issue twice:

  1. Login to Mac as 'user1'
  2. Open Fusion, login as myself--Fusion works fine.
  3. Quit Fusion, logout of 'user1' and login as 'user2'
  4. Open Fusion, login as myself--black screen issue

If I login to 'user3', 'user4', they also get the black screen issue. I'm using macOS on a MacBook Pro (MacBook Pro 9,2).


I've even completely wiped the OS and reinstalled it twice and was able to replicate the above 4 steps.


Can I provide logs or any other information to help diagnose the issue? I noticed there's a '??' message that appears only when the workspace has this issue--does that mean anything to you?

Good afternoon. Since the update, I cannot see the icons in the Application Bar, Tool Bar, or the Timeline. The bars themselves are visible as grey strips and the functions are *there* and can be clicked even though they are not visible. I'm using a PC with Windows 10 Pro, 32GB RAM, and a GeForce 6GB graphics card.


It just so happened that my Hobbyist/Personal licence expired today. I renewed it and the licence shows it is now valid until I don't *think* it's the cause but I thought I'd mention it in case I'm wrong about that.


So far I've tried a number of things to correct the problem but have met with no success. Things I've tried:


1. Restart Fusion

2. Restart my PC.

3. Log out of Fusion then Log back in. This caused the program to get stuck at the launch screen but I was able to correct that by logging into the Autodesk Desktop App and then launching Fusion

4. Uninstall/reinstall Fusion

5. Update my Nvidia GeForce driver to the latest version.

6. In Fusion , changed my video driver from DirectX 11 to DirectX 9 and even tried the OpenGL driver.

7. Uninstall/reinstall Fusion using Fusion Cleaner uninstall tool.


I've attached a Screencast capture of my dilemma to illustrate the problem. I'm not sure what else to try and would be grateful for suggestions.

Converting a SVG to G-code with Fusion

Pro tip: If you are in the middle of an operation and want to cancel, press the escape key. If you want to undo your last operation, press cmd+z (Mac) or ctrl+z (Windows) 

Pro tip: Keyboard shortcuts can make this process a lot quicker and are indicated with square brackets [example hot key]. In cases where Mac/Windows hot keys are different, both are listed separated by a slash.

Prerequisite: Email [email&#;protected] to get an invite to join the BARN Slack group.

1) Open Fusion application.

2) Click the circle with your initials in the top right corner. Select Preferences from the dropdown. In the Preferences dialog, select &#;Z up&#; for the Default modeling orientation. Select &#;in&#; for both Design and Manufacture default units. Select OK at the bottom of the dialog.

3) Click the Create sketch tool in the toolbar on the upper left and select the bottom plane.

4) Select the 2-Point Rectangle tool in the toolbar [r] and place the first point on the origin. Drag the rectangle up and to the right and click again to complete the rectangle (the exact dimensions do not matter at this point &#; they will be set in the next step).

fusion dragging rectanglefusion rectangle complete


5) Select the Sketch Dimension tool [d] in the toolbar.

Double-click on the top side of the rectangle and enter the desired width of your image &#; this is the width that will ultimately be cut on the CNC Plasma Cutter. Press the enter/return key to set the width. Double-click on the left side of the rectangle, enter the desired height, and press the enter/return key.

The rectangle should now reflect the desired size.

Pro tip: If you want to navigate around the canvas and/or zoom in/out, use the bottom toolbar

6) Click on the small down arrow next to the word Insert on the right side of the toolbar. From the drop-down menu, click on Insert SVG.

7) Select Insert from my computer and select the SVG that you want to cut with the CNC Plasma Cutter (for most use cases, you will have just created this with Inkscape).

8) Manipulate the SVG image as described below. Note that any time a drag operation is completed, the text values in the Insert SVG dialog will be effectively set to 0 (even though they may not change). Any subsequent changes will be relative to the current image, not the original image

  • Positioning
    • Drag & drop: Click on the square drag handle that rendered on the plane when the image was inserted. Hold down the mouse and drag to position the SVG image inside the rectangle.
    • Precise positioning can be set by changing the X Distance and Y Distance in the Insert SVG dialog. Note that after completing a drag operation, the text values will represent relative changes to the current position (not the initial position).

  • Flip
    • Use the Horizontal flip/Vertical flip buttons in the Insert SVG dialog as necessary to manipulate the image as necessary.

  • Scale
    • Adjust the XY Scale Plane as necessary to fit the SVG completely inside the rectangle

9) Click Ok on the Insert SVG dialog and then click Finish Sketch in the upper right.

10) Click on the File menu at the top and select Save [cmd+d/ctrl+d]. Name the file and save it to folder of your choosing.


11) Change from Design mode to Manufacture mode using the top-left dropdown. Select the Fabrication tab.

12) Select the Setup tool in the toolbar and New setup from the dropdown. Make the following changes in the Setup dialog using the tabbed interface at the top of the dialog:

  • On the first tab (Setup &#; indicated with white/blue box icons)
    • Change Origin to Selected point using the dropdown
  • On the second tab (Stock &#; indicated with yellow box icon)
    • Change Mode to Fixed size box with the dropdown
    • Change Height (Z) to in with the text input
  • On the third tab (Post-process &#; indicated with black/blue document icon)
    • Change the Program Name/Number to a name of your choice so it can be used in the future

Click OK at the bottom of the dialog to accept these changes.

13) Select the 2D cutting tool using the top toolbar. On the 2D Profile dialog, select the Tool tab and then click the button that shows &#;Select&#;&#;.

The Tool Library dialog will open. Select Sample Profile Tools (Inch) and then Plasma cutter. Click the blue button that shows &#;Select&#; in the lower right.


14) The main canvas should be open again. Click on the Geometry tab on the 2D Profile dialog. Click the line on the SVG and a blue outline will render on the SVG. Press OK in the 2D Profile dialog to accept.

The tool path will be generated if there are no issues. If there are issues, a warning triangle icon will show in the design tree. Read the error and troubleshoot as necessary.





15) In the Actions section of the top toolbar, click on simulate. Click on the play button (right-pointing triangle) arrow at the bottom of the screen to start the simulation. Simulate mode can be exited by clicking Close at the bottom of the Simulate dialog.

This shows the cut the CNC Plasma cutter will make. If you need to make any changes to this path, right-click the Profile (it will have a name like &#;[T1] 2D Profile 1&#;) and select Edit at the top of the dropdown.

You will notice in the simulation there are small diagonal lines outside of the SVG &#; those are the lead-in and lead-out lines for the CNC plasma cutter. They should lead in/out from the waste material, not the finished piece.

If you need to flip those lines to the other side of the cut, select the Geometry tab at the top of the 2D Profile dialog and click the red arrow that renders alongside the SVG. The red arrow should move to the other side of the line.

Make any other needed changes to the cut, click OK in the 2D Profile dialog, and run the simulation again per directions above until the cut meets your specifications.

16) Download the latest CNC Plasma Cutter on a pinned message on the #mtl-cnc-plasma-table Slack channel.

17) In the Manage section in the top toolbar, select Post Library as indicated by the G pages icon.

The Post Library dialog will open. Select Local from the left pane. Click the Import button at the top of the dialog. Select the post-processor file you downloaded in the previous step.

The new post-processor should show up. Close the Post Library dialog.

17) In the Actions section in the top toolbar, click the Post Process button as indicated by the G1 G2 icon.

In the Post field, select Choose from library&#;

Choose the post-processor added in the previous step from Local. Click Select. It should now show up in the Post field.


Click the Post button at the bottom and save to a thumb drive.

Hi all,


Some of you may have experienced the symptoms described in this support article.   Late last night, Fusion pushed out an update to address and fix this issue. By updating Fusion to - the black toolbar issue should disappear.


For anyone who used the environment variable workaround via the support article/troubleshooting - you can go ahead and remove the environment variables once Fusion has successfully updated, as these may cause issues with other softwares.


For those who cannot see or update Fusion to the latest version - if possible, use the workaround in the support article above to add the environment variables temporarily. This will allow you to load Fusion Once Fusion is launched, in the clock icon in the upper-right will be a 1. Click this icon to view the status of the update process, and restart Fusion once the update is completed. 


Alternatively - Fusion can be updated manually, by reinstalling Fusion from your products and services page via Autodesk Accounts.


If you need any help, or have any questions, please leave a comment.

360 toolbar fusion black

Dear all, 


As of yesterday Fusion was working fine on my Microsoft Surface Pro 6 without any monitor attached. I even installed an update earlier this week and as of yesterday it was working fine.


Today I opened Fusion and without really paying much attention, I noticed it restarted and indicated that Fusion was updated.


Now, the toolbar / menu bar appears black (please see screenshot).


No changes as far as I'm aware have been made to the PC in the last week. The surface pro 6 has an Intel UHD Graphics chip and according to the windows device manager, it's up to date. I also have no "Windows Updates" pending.


I also went to the Fusionexe, right-clicked properties, and disabled "fullscreen optimizations" to see if that would help.


No luck. I also adjusted the screen size from the currently selected % to %, didn't make a difference with the black bar.


So, before I go on a hunt for possibly additional drivers and things, is this by chance a known issue?


It coincided with a Fusion update that took place on my computer today, not sure if it's a coincidence or not.


Any advice is appreciated, thank you!
