I've got a NUC7i5 (Intel) on which I'm running Ubuntu mate 18.04. I've installed VirtualBox, Windows 10 and Fusion 360. When I'm using Fusion 360 and I draw in 3D, the solids appearance become weird : enter image description here I checked the "Fusion 360/Help/Graphic Diagnostic/Limit effects to optimize performance" box, with no result. To be sure it was not due to my computer hardware, I installed Windows 10 then Fusion 360 into a partition on my HDD, checked the "Fusion 360/Help/Graphic Diagnostic/Limit effects to optimize performance" box, and it worked well.

I have also tried to use Simplify 3D in VirtualBox, but when I launch this program a widow pops up saying that Simplify 3D needs OpenGL 2.0 or higher and that my version is only 1.1. I guess that the problem comes from Ubuntu and maybe from the graphic driver.

I've erased the Windows 10 partition, and I'd like to be able to use Fusion 360 in VirtualBox (or any other virtualisation program).

Following the remarks : My computer can run a program in Windows without (or with minor) graphic problems. It cannot run it in Ubuntu without graphic problems. As the hardware has not changed, we can consider it's not a hardware problem, but a driver problem (I mean the way Ubuntu handles the graphics - sorry I do not know anything about computers).

  • Give a run to a VmWare trial version, VirtualBox has been historically slower and full of strange bugs. – Rui F Ribeiro Jul 1 '18 at 16:36

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this concerns a Windows program being well supported. – Rui F Ribeiro Jul 1 '18 at 16:56
  • VirtualBox is perfectly fine, but if your computer doesn't support pci express sharing no way it will work in VBox nor VMware nor kvm.... you should install the driver of your nvidia graphic card on Ubuntu. See websiteforstudents.com/… – Kiwy Jul 2 '18 at 12:06
