Being able to sketch and model parts in CAD is an essential part of the design process, and one very important aspect of parametric CAD modeling is constraints. This course will help you to understand and master sketch constraints and part modeling.
Sketches and part modeling in a typical 3-4 day CAD class usually consume 50% of the time--these topics are that important. And within the parametric modeling process, having sketch constraints is essential. In this course, Parametric Modeling and Sketch Constraints in Fusion 360, you will learn how to model parts for your designs that follow the appropriate constraints. Initially, you'll start creating 2D sketches and turning them into profiles, which in turn, can be extruded into a 3D model. In the second half of the course, you will progress into creation of multiple sketches, each with their own constraints. Finally, you will be modeling familiar 3D parts and putting everything into action - the sketch constraints, 2D dimensioning, work features, and the Modify and Create tools. By the end of this course, you will have mastered sketch constraints and parametric modeling, which will help you to design and manufacture better, more functional models in the future.

Course Overview Hi, everyone. This is Jomarc and welcome to Parametric Modeling and Sketch Constraints in Fusion 360. I am a CAD Evangelist and a training manager for Mechaniweb, an autodesk authorized academic partner. In this Fusion 360 course, I will secure your understanding and mastery of the essential part modeling techniques, notably 2d sketching, sketch constraints, design intent and Parametric part modeling strategies. By the end of this course you will be very comfortable and hungry for more complex parametric parts and move into assembly creation. Join me as we all embark in this fun and learning experience with Parametric Modeling and Sketch Constraints in Fusion 360. Let's get started.
Creating Symmetrical 3D Parts with More Than Two Sketch Features Hi, everyone. In this lesson we'll be creating this symmetrical part, and we'll be creating more than more than one sketches. Now let's initially create the feature with 110 dimension. I'm going to press letter L for line. I'm going to select this face, left click to select. For our first point, if it's 100 then I'm going to assume it's around 30-something. I'm going to left click here. So notice as I slowly move my cursor to the right, notice the number. So it's now around 34. I'm going to left click, and quickly create the profile. Left click this one. This one, this one. This one. So what we did here is a quick rough sketch. I'm going to hit escape to disable the line command. Now, a quick tip, make it a habit to initially add the constraints before dimension.
Creating an Angled Datum Plane Hi everyone. In this lesson, we'll be creating the angle rod link. On my keyboard, I'm going to hit letter C for circle, selecting this plane. Center point at the origin, and the diameter is 80. Pressing enter. Now I'm going to hit letter E for extrude. Prompted to select a profile, selecting this profile. I'm going to drag our arrow to the right. Going to direction and selecting symmetric. Going to distance. The value for this one, 64. . . divided by two. And hit OK.
