This beginner-level CAD course focuses on the transition from 2D to 3D design. Whether you’re a designer, engineer, machinist, maker, artist, or just curious, this course helps you take your first steps towards professional 3D modeling.
Introduction to a series of video tutorials and hands-on exercises that cover the basics of 3D modeling
1 min 10 seconds
This lesson shows how to create new projects, open models, and save them in Fusion 360.
3 mins 11 seconds
This lesson introduces tools and techniques for surveying and navigating CAD models. We'll cover the Viewcube, navigation, display, and Orbit tools.
6 mins 9 seconds
This lesson shows how to sketch and edit 2D CAD models using parametric tools such as lines, rectangles, and constraints.
5 mins 31 seconds
This lesson shows how to create a 3D CAD model using tools such as Extrude and Fillet, and how to edit model features and dimensions using the Timeline.
5 mins 1 second
This lesson shows how to to create technical drawings and output them in various formats using the Fusion 360 Documentation Environment .
4 mins 39 seconds
This lesson introduces the modeling Workspaces and the tools used for creating professional 3D models.
3 mins 14 seconds
This lesson shows how to import and calibrate reference images for parametric modeling in Fusion 360.
3 mins 37 seconds
This lesson demonstrates how to sketch the main shape of the saw trigger. We will use splines and lines, edit the splines, add dimensions, and use an attached canvas image for reference.
5 mins 40 seconds
This lesson demonstrates how to extrude the trigger sketch to create two bodies. We will add fillets, combine and organize the bodies, and use the attached canvas image for reference.
5 mins 48 seconds
This lesson shows how to assign and manage Physical Materials and Appearances in Fusion 360.
4 mins 24 seconds
This lesson shows how to import and calibrate reference images using the Sculpt Workspace.
3 mins 41 seconds
This lesson shows how to create, move, and edit a T-Spline face and a T-Spline cylinder using the Fusion 360 Sculpt Workspace.
6 mins 22 seconds
This lesson shows how to insert edges of T-Spline forms, weld and join freeform bodies, and add material and bridge freeform bodies using the Fusion 360 Sculpt Workspace.
4 mins 35 seconds
This lesson shows how to flatten and mirror, make additional copies of sculpted bodies, and bevel. Additionally, we will show how to Crease and Thicken sculpted bodies.
4 mins 30 seconds
This lesson shows how to organize the visibility of the reciprocating saw 3D model elements for direct modeling. We will also use Press Pull and parametric modeling to edit the model geometry.
4 mins 50 seconds
This lesson shows how to locate and upload a 3D model to the cloud. We will also show Press Pull, Move/Copy, delete to modify to edit a 3D model geometry.
This lesson shows how to create a component from a body, ground new components, and create a new joint.
5 mins 52 seconds
This lesson shows how to apply several techniques for assembly modeling to the Saw model, including how to ground components, create a Rigid Group, and create an As-built Joint.
