Fusion 360 Personal Plan LIMITATIONS (Concerns + Alternatives???)

From Oct 1 2020 the free Personal Fusion 360 license is becoming limited in a number of ways, and it's important to be aware of what may affect your workflow and what I feel isn't such a big deal.

If you want to move to another CAD program that's free or at least NOT a subscription license, I cover some alternatives as well.

I pay for Fusion 360 (a business expense) and it suits my needs, so I will continue to use it on the channel going forwards unless a viable alternative is made available.
