Mesh to BRep Missing in Fusion 360
You would like to convert a mesh file to a BRep (solid body) in Fusion 360 and cannot find the "Mesh to BRep" option.
Mesh to BRep is no longer a workflow. As of July 2021, you will now use "Convert Mesh" in the new Mesh tools. See our step-by-step tutorial on YouTube.
See the old workflow below:
Mesh to BRep is only available in Direct Modeling Mode.
To enter direct modeling mode, right-click on the Fusion 360 Browser > select "Do Not Capture Design History."
A warning dialog will appear. Click 'continue' to enter direct modeling mode.
The parametric timeline has been removed (pictured below). The modeling environment is now in direct modeling mode.
Right-click on the Mesh body in the Fusion 360 Browser > Select Mesh to BRep.
What is Direct Modeling?
Direct modeling mode empowers you to define and capture geometry quickly, without spending time worrying about features, constraints, and original design intent.
