fscad can be added as an Add-in in Fusion 360, which allows it to register itself as a top level "fscad" module. This allows your script to simply import it as from fscad import * or import fscad, and not have to worry about bundling fscad with your script or otherwise deal with sys.path or PYTHONPATH to get it imported.

The simplest way to install fscad is to use the "Install scripts or addins from GitHub" app from Fusion's app store. Just install that Add-in and run it from "Add-Ins->Scripts and Add-Ins", using the url to the fscad github project ( Once installed, restart Fusion 360 and you are good to go.

Alternately, you can clone the fscad repo or otherwise download a source code bundle and extract it, and then manually add a new Add-in in Fusion 360 pointing to the fscad directory.
