CAD Software Integration




Frequently Asked Questions


What is Fabrio?

Fabrio is a learning platform that teaches computer-aided design and gives learners real-time feedback!

Why is Fabrio great?

The main value of Fabrio comes from the ability for students to work asynchronously and get real-time feedback on their work instead of going to office hours or waiting for an in-person session. Our independent research and extensive work with universities showed that students could progress roughly 30% faster using Fabrio than traditional teaching methods.

How does Fabrio save time for Educators?

Fabrio is great for educators as it helps save them time when creating learning material, makes it easier to monitor student progress, and reduces their marking/grading workload.

Can I get a free trial or a demo of Fabrio?

Yes, please get in touch with us here.

CAD Software Integration

Which Computer-Aided Design (CAD) Software does Fabrio work with?

Fabrio currently only works with Autodesk Fusion. If you want us to work with other software, tell us here!

How Does Fabrio Integrate with Computer-Aided Design (CAD) Software?

Fabrio has an add-in for Fusion that can be downloaded from the Autodesk App Store. Once downloaded, it can be used in conjunction with our courses.
Whenever you see the ‘Check’ Icon within a course you can use the add-in!

Are there any specific system requirements for running Fabrio’s software?

Nope! As long as you have access to an internet browser and Fusion installed you are good to go!.

Does Fabrio work with the online version of Fusion?

You can still follow our courses on Fabrio. However, the add-in will not work as Autodesk doesn’t allow third-party add-ins on the online version of Fusion.

How often does Fabrio update its courses and software compatibility?

We know Autodesk Fusion updates a lot! Don’t worry though, we are on top of it, checking for updates each day! For the courses, we update them roughly every 6 months, but if there’s been an important UI change to Fusion, we’ll make sure we update it ASAP!

Do I need to be worried about Autodesk Fusion updating?

Not at all! As we mentioned above, we’re on top of everything from our end, so as long as you’re okay with Fusion updating on your computer, there’s nothing extra to worry about.


How much does Fabrio cost?

Fabrio has flexible pricing for schools, universities, and other organisations to keep everything as accessible as possible. If you’d like more information about pricing, you can get in touch here.

If you’re just an individual user who just wants to learn CAD, it’s only $9.99 a month, you can sign up here for a free trial!

Is Fabrio free for F1 in Schools?

As part of our partnership with F1 in Schools, we can offer specific F1 in Schools licenses at a significantly reduced rate. We love the competition and want to see as many schools participating as possible! Please get in touch if you want more information about this.


Can I get real-time feedback on my designs with Fabrio?

Fabrio can give you feedback on designs that you’ve made using any of our courses.

Right now, we can’t give you feedback on any designs you’ve made yourself.

Does Fabrio offer certification?

Not yet, but it’s on our list!


Do I have to be a student or educator to have a Fabrio account?

No! You can sign up as an individual here.

What are the best practices for integrating Fabrio into my classroom or curriculum?

Fabrio works best when educators assign students projects to complete on Fabrio. We have found that once students start building their skills, they want to try all the projects! Providing the initial structure will ensure that students have the skills to move on to the harder projects.

Are there any community forums or support groups where Fabrio users can share tips and advice?

Yes, but it’s invite-only at the moment! Please here if you would like to join other educators using Fabrio!

Can I contribute to the Fabrio course library, and if so, how?

Yes, you can! Please here here if you want to add your own material!

Can I request my courses for Fabrio?

Yes, you can! We can’t guarantee we can get to them immediately, as we’ve got an exciting curriculum we’re working on, but we’ll do our best to integrate your suggestions into it.

What courses should I do first?

You can see a few of our most popular courses on the Course Library page, be sure to check these often as they’re changed frequently! If you want a longer project, we recommend trying one of the Pathways.
