3rd annual

DSI Fusion Summit 2024

Experience the Power of Partnerships


May 29 - 30
Chicago, IL


Thank you to everyone who joined us!

Better than ever

We've heard your feedback and added even more in-depth Fusion CAM presentations to help you program faster and make better parts.

We'll still get insider knowledge about the future of Fusion from key Autodesk product managers, but this year we're doubling down on time-saving techniques like containers and templates, post processor customizations, clever add-ins, and the real deal about AI acceleration for quoting and programming.

Craig presenting

It's who you know...

What you learn at DSI Fusion Summit is only half of the story.

Meet and eat with influential people from Autodesk, DSI, and the most motivated and innovative Fusion users from around the world.

Swap stories and brainstorm with cool people between sessions while enjoying tasty snacks and checking out the live cutting demos and machines on display at Mazak's Chicago Technology Center.

Phil meeting

Extras included!

We know how important it is to keep everyone fueled and refreshed all throughout the day, so you can expect plenty of coffee, food, and drinks, including optional off-site dinner both days!
