Today’s lament (what a whiner) haha

Why do v-bits ALWAYS fall on the floor pointy end down?

Brings me to my oft repeated phrase…”Of Course It Did, How Could It Not?”

That’s all for today, happy cutting to all and to all, a goodnight!


Remember to always stick your endmills on the back of a cat, and they won’t ever fall pointy end down again. Simple. :slight_smile:

My day in the shop began with Fusion360 telling me to update, which I did, and then this happened:

I present to you, the tallest pop-up window in HISTORY. Ouf of curiosity, I used the “Move Window” command to scrolldown to find the OK button, and I gave up after 50+ screen heights. Insert eye roll here.

Uninstalled it, reinstalled it from scratched, it worked fine afterwards.

Exactly that pop-up…good luck :confused:

Same thing yesterday, but updated successfully with no lengthy message. Now I just need to learn to use the program effectively :thinking:

You may well find that Fusion’s horrible “application streaming” lost the directory it had filled up with bits of app it had downloaded and you now have a streaming pile of dead files clogging up disk space.

I’ve had a couple of failed update incidents where the cleanest way to fix it was to delete all the local fusion files and orphaned folders before re-running the installer.

Sigh. Now that I have reinstalled everything, is there a specific location I should look for those orphaned files to clean-up?

At your own risk, and I wouldn’t do this unless I intended to do a reinstall immediately afterwards…

Assuming you’re on Windows and not OSX, go into C:\Users\Julien\AppData\Local\Autodesk and you should find most of the app stuff.

There’s a bunch of directories in there which seem to store local things for you, some of them may be custom material and tool libraries and things like that, no idea what is cloud synced here.

The directory of interest is ‘webdeploy’ which is currently 2.69GB on my Windows install, this seems to be where the streamer stuffs all the files it downloads and the folder it doesn’t do a very good job of cleaning up after a fail.

Inside ‘webdeploy’ you’ll see a bunch of folders with hex UUIDs for names and varying dates, presumably based on the download or build date. That’s the bit I previously had to delete to get the installer to actually work and re-install.

But like I say, at your own risk, so I’d only do this between re-installs of the app.
