Fusion 360 for Makers
About this class
So you have access to a 3D printer and want to join the new Industrial Revolution? You want to make original designs and maybe even customize those designs to specific people? That means you can’t just download and print other people’s files—you need to learn that software yourself! Well, if you are just learning how to do that or have outgrown the “starter” apps, you’ve come to the right place! With this course you’ll soon be making your own designs with Autodesk’s Fusion 360 software.
What Is Fusion 360?
Fusion 360 is a 3D design program. Autodesk chose that name because of the many software packages that are rolled into it. You can do computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), and computer-aided engineering (CAE) tasks. Fusion 360 is a robust program, and it can be complicated, but it is still suitable for all levels of user. Whether you’re new to modeling, a hobbyist, or an experienced engineer, you’ll find this software useful.
So make sure you CAD along with this course to get the most out of it.
