Description

This course will take a look at Fusion 360 from the eyes of someone very new to the tool with long history using other 3D CAD tools, specifically SolidWorks. In this course, Fusion 360 for SOLIDWORKS Users, you will learn how to model a basic toggle clamp with an introduction in how to create extrusion, cuts, sweeps, and revolves. First, you'll see the toggle clamp parts and how they are assembled together. Next, you'll see the creation of the linkage, lever, and end piece. Finally, you'll look at updating the toggle clamp based on some markups received after a design review. When you're finished with this course, you will have a foundational knowledge of Fusion 360 as well as an understanding of how to overcome potential pitfalls and frustrations migrating from SolidWorks. Software required: Fusion 360 2.0.1909.

Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Brian Kwant, and welcome to my course, Fusion 360 for SOLIDWORKS Users. I'm a mechanical engineer and have been using SOLIDWORKS and Inventor for the past 11 years designing mining process equipment. Fusion 360 is a cloud-based CAD system growing in popularity and functionality. It's free to download, so go get it loaded on your machine and start modeling. This course is an introduction to Fusion 360 for people who have used SOLIDWORKS in the past. Some of the major topics that we will cover include basics on how to get started using Fusion, how to do extrusions, cuts, and sweeps, suggestions on how to build design intent into your models. By the end of this course, you'll have a basic overview of the Fusion 360 interface and be able to start exploring Fusion on your own. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Fusion with the Fusion 360 for SOLIDWORKS Users course at Pluralsight.
