Fusion 360 Badge
January 11 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
What You’ll Learn:
Interested in 3D design? Bring your ideas into reality with CAD! In this intro course, you will learn basic use of Fusion 360 – a powerful, approachable and most importantly free! CAD/CAM (Computer-Aided Design And Manufacturing) software.
In this course we will cover the following:
- Familiarization with user interface and key settings
- 2D sketcher functionality
- Basic 3D modeling (Extrudes, revolves, holes etc.)
- Basic assembly functionality
- Tips + tricks / modeling best practices
- Exporting files for 3D printing and laser/plasma cutting
This is a great class to take prior to our 3D Printing, MIG welding, and CNC Plasma Cutting class as you will learn how to design your own files to make!
Project TBD! There will be a basic template but creative liberties will be granted!
IMPORTANT!: Please sign up for a Fusion 360 license prior to attending this class. There are only a limited number of Facility-provided computers. Because of this, we recommend you download Fusion 360 to your personal computer and bring it to use it in class. If using your own laptop, a mouse with scroll wheel is required for this course.
