Whether a student or professional, it’s important to build strong foundational concepts before making your first design. This course explores the core concepts of Fusion 360 CAD/CAM through a series of lectures and exercises in under two hours.
This beginner level CAD course focuses on easing the transition from 2D to 3D design. Whether you’re a designer, engineer, machinist, maker, artist, or just plain curious, this course helps you take your first steps towards professional 3D modeling.
For designers, rapid prototyping is essential to communicating design form and function. In this course, you design a 2-piece carbon fiber Formula SAE car body, turning your 2D concepts into complex 3D models to quickly produce a 3D printed prototype
Part 2 of this course will focus on the the Sculpt environment. We'll modify the design so that is closely matches an imported reference and attached canvas. Then, we'll explore inspection tools that allow you to review and modify the form.
Part 3 of this course explores the Patch and Render workspaces. We’ll trim and stitch surfaces to make a single surface or solid body. Then, we’ll use the Render workspace to apply appearances and decals, and create a cloud render of the car design.
In part 4 of this course, we’ll generate a realistic rendering of the car design in the Render workspace. Finally, we’ll Insert a mesh file into a new design and prep for 3D printing or importing into animation software.
With Autodesk Fusion 360 CAD/CAM, all aspects of the engineering process can be addressed in one platform. We’ll work with imported FSAE chassis models, design and simulate mechanical suspension components, and validate motion via an assembly.
In part 2 of this course, we’ll explore assemblies, animations, and drawings. In Fusion 360, components are assembled using joints. Once assembled, you can use the Animation workspace to create animations of how the design should be operated.
Very few designs are a one piece component. This course focuses on the tools within Autodesk Fusion 360 CAD CAM software that enable users to connect components into complete designs that maintain the special and functional relationships between com
In this course, we’ll take an example model from simulation results, to additively manufactured and optimized part. We’ll include the use of Fusion 360, Print Studio, and Netfabb, to introduce advanced additive techniques for further optimization.
In this course learn how to simultaneously generate multiple CAD-ready solutions based on real-world manufacturing constraints and performance requirements using generative design technology in Fusion 360.
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is a powerful tool for understanding the behavior of fluids within engineering systems. In this course, we explore the theory and modeling techniques for simulating fluid flow and heat transfer using Autodesk CFD.
In this course, you'll learn the science behind the Fusion 360 simulation toolset used to analyze components made with linear materials. You'll also review Fusion 360 simulation tools that can be used to perform multiple types of analysis.
In this course, you'll explore the Fusion 360 tools for analyzing nonlinear materials. We'll cover topics like how a plastic buckle performs during assembly to ensure its material properties are capable of withstanding the load and deformation.
Fusion 360 allows users to analyze thermal effects to help optimize any design. In this course, we will cover the various modes of heat transfer and how analyzing the distribution and stress caused by heat can help us make informed design decisions.
