Description

Sketches and part-modeling in a typical 3-4 day CAD class usually consumes 50% of your time. In this course, Fusion 360 Essentials, you will learn and explore all the essential areas of Fusion 360. You'll start by discovering the areas of sketch creation and the importance of constraints in parametric mode. Moving forward, you will explore the various strategies on creating complex free-form geometries in the sculpt environment, as well as exploring joining parts into assemblies. Lastly, you'll create stunning renders and technical drawings for you to communicate our design into marketing and manufacturing. By the end of this course, you will have obtained clear understanding and mastery of sketch constraints and part modeling--both very important aspects of parametric CAD modeling. Software required: Fusion 360.

Introduction and Project Overview
(upbeat music) Hi, everyone. My name is Jomarc. I'm a mechanical design engineer and a training manager for MechaniWeb, an Autodesk authorized academic partner. My current mission is the inclusion of Autodesk software into academic curriculum in the areas of manufacturing, architecture, engineering, and construction, and media and entertainment. Particularly, in this course, I am going to discuss and guide you throughout your first encounter with Autodesk Fusion 360. Some of the notable topics from participating in this course is mastery of sketch constraints, parametric part modeling in model work space, creating organic shapes using these blinds in a sculpt environment, assemble parts and components intelligently with joints, communicate your design with technical drawings, and render stunning images using Fusion 360's powerful ray-tracer and cloud rendering services. By the end of this training, you will be able to practically design your own product coming from idea to reality. I am honored and excited to share these valuable tips and tricks with you. Sign up now and let's get started.
