Advanced Fusion 360 - Solid and Surface Hybrid Modeling

by Claas Eicke Kuhnen

This course will help you understand the advantages of each modeling approach and how they work best together surfacing complex object geometry's with ease. Software required: Fusion 360.

What you'll learn

Using the right surfacing tool and technique can sometimes be a struggle at the beginning of a design project. In this course, Advanced Fusion 360 - Solid and Surface Hybrid Modeling, you'll be introduced to the concept and application of solid and surface hybrid modeling in Fusion 360. First, you'll go over the effective surface strategies and best practice for parametric workflow. Next, you'll discover the difference between solid and surface tools and how they can be mixed. Then, you'll learn how to generate appropriate model types for design ideation and evaluation. Finally, you will get to learn how to utilize the timeline to structure design steps and organize design variations. By the end of this course, you'll know how to structure your design and when to use solid and surface modeling techniques effectively. Software required: Fusion 360.
