Welcome to Bommer’s first newsletter. Since this is our first, let's start with some housekeeping:

  • You’re receiving this because you have downloaded Bommer for Fusion 360™ from the Autodesk® app store or have installed and activated one of our Bommer add-ins with this email address.
  • We'll send these out about once every month or two, and want to include a mix of company and product updates, industry updates, and something fun or funny.
  • Please feel free to forward this newsletter (and/or share this newsletter signup link) with people you think might be interested.
  • If you don't want to receive Bommer updates, great CAD/BOM tips, or horrible jokes that I think are funny, we understand and still like you! Also, the unsubscribe link is in the email footer.

With me? Awesome. On to the good stuff.

Upcoming webinar

I'm excited to share that I will be participating in a webinar showing off Bommer for Fusion 360 with our friends at NexGenSolutions next Thursday, May 25, 2023 at 3:00PM CST. If you haven't seen Bommer in a while, think you could use a refresher, or just want to hear me talk for a bit about easy to use bill of materials software, please sign up at

As an added bonus: I'll be showing off some never before seen improvements to Bommer for Fusion 360 which will be available in the next release. Be there and see them first!

Feature spotlight

Many users use Bommer to capture thumbnails of their parts and subassemblies. Some might say it's one of the most useful features of a Bommer export; a picture, as they say, is worth a thousand words. But did you know that you can tell Bommer which view-cube orientation to use when capturing the image? You can! Check out our quick tip here to learn how:

Terrible jokes

I promised terrible jokes, and I am a man of my word: We're aiming to share a bit of humor to break up the exciting news and great tips. Let us know if you enjoyed them, there are many more jokes where these came from!

We want to hear from you!

We're looking for feedback on how to make this content most relevant (and also how to make our product better, of course). Here's how it works: we ask a question, you reply to this email, and we tailor our newsletter content to help you get the most out of reading it. We may even go wild and build a product feature or two!

To kick us off:

What is the hardest/most painful/most annoying thing about your engineering bill of materials process today?

Looking forward to hearing your replies. Thanks for reading, y'all!
