I will eventually go into greater detail if there is any interest, but after a lot of trial and dissatisfaction, have concluded that the only way I can inexpensively and reliably utilize Fusion 360 on a Linux desktop is via remote desktop (RDP). I am running a remote desktop client in Linux called Remmina with the RDP plugin that allows it to access a Windows PC…in my case, my laptop which is on the same a network.
I tried the free versions of Virtual Box and VMware and neither did an acceptable job with 3d graphics. Even with their respective upgrades. I had to run in 2d mode and it was still wonky. Dual boot was another option, but it requires rebooting every time you need to switch. Each of those options require a Windows license, so testing required a full reinstall of Win10. Another option was renting time on a remote computer on Paperspace, but I saw that getting costly fast. But the Paperspace idea is what brought me to consider RDP.
Remmina works quite well and allows me to go full screen on one of my monitors, leaving Linux on the other with seamless transitions. You can’t work directly on the guest computer (laptop in my case) while accessing it remotely, but disconnecting and reconnecting is quick and easy if you need to switch.
I have 4 raspberry Pi’s doing various tasks on my network so Remmina also allows me to access their desktops as well.
