How to detect DWG files created in the drawing module in Autodesk Fusion 360?

A - answer If you need to identify all DWG drawings in a folder that were saved from the drawing view (2D) function of the cloud application Autodesk Fusion 360, you can use the free CADstudio DBXscanFus application.

The free LISP utility DBXscanFus scans all DWG files in a given folder (and its subfolders) and generates a report with a list of all DWG files containing a "signature" of Fusion360. The checked files are not opened individually.

Just appload this utility and start the "DBXscanFus" command. Browse to the top folder you want to process and click "Save". It will find local DWG files saved from Fusion 360.

You can download DBXscanFus from Download, see the accompanying TXT file.

Sample of a report:
