Description

Moving from concept to manufacturing in any design process can be a daunting task requiring the input of many specialists and taking advantage of the strengths of various software applications. The more people there are on a project the more time consuming the whole process becomes, requiring meetings and workshops to address design questions, obstacles and action solutions. In this course, Fusion 360 - Designing Wood Fittings and Furniture, you'll look at how Fusion 360 allows you to quickly and efficiently design production ready furniture and fittings. First, you'll learn how to organize your project for quick and easy design iterations. Next, you'll discover how to create intelligent parametric designs and also how to create flat-pack types of furniture. Finally, you'll explore how to set up the pieces for CNC, cutting inside the same application. By the end of this course, you'll know how to approach a new design concept and create an initial design in such a way that you can test different iterations. Software required: Autodesk Fusion 360.

Hi everyone, my name is Quintus Smit and welcome to my course called Fusion 360 Wood Furniture and Fittings.

I am a lecturer and Certified Autodesk software trainer in the design and engineering fields and currently I am employed as Principal at the Draughting and Engineering Academy. I have extensive experience in training in parametric and 3D modeling software as well as various graphic design and motion applications.

In this course, we are going to look at how Fusion360 allows you to quickly en efficiently design and production ready furniture and fittings. Not only will we design the pieces but also set it up for manufacturing and simulate the cutting process.

Some of the major topics that we will cover include:

  1. Organising your project for quick and easy design iteration
  2. Create intelligent parametric designs
  3. Creating flat-pack type furniture
  4. Set up the pieces for CnC cutting inside the same application
By the end this course, you’ll know how to approach a new design concept, create an initial design in such a way that you can test different iterations and once you are happy, set everything up for manufacturing.

Before beginning the course you should be familiar with the basics of the tools in Autodesk Fusion 360.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn furniture and fitting design with theFusion 360 Wood Furniture and Fittings course, at Pluralsight.
