What Will I Learn?
  • Use Fusion 360's environments to plan out and design products that can be 3D printed, CNC milled, or otherwise produced.
  • Create photo-realistic renderings of their creations to impress friends, investors, or to use on websites.
  • Run simulations on their models, to see how those models would fare in real-world situations.
  • Use sketching, sculpting, and surface modeling to create dynamically updated 3D models.

Requirements
  • You should be comfortable using your keyboard and mouse.
  • You really should purchase a 3-button mouse (all CAD programs work better with those)
  • You should be running Windows or MacOS (no Linux)
Description

Come join the hundreds of people who supported our Meshmixer online training Kickstarter with our next flagship course on Autodesk Fusion 360! While Meshmixer is indeed part of the 3D modeling workflow (dealing with more organic models), Autodesk Fusion 360 can be used to model the next great gadget, sculpt a beautiful artwork, and generally help you create and showcase real-world objects.

This course has over 15 hours of instruction, including a thorough reference section that gives short videos on every feature inside of Fusion 360. 

  • Get stuck on how to use the Revolve tool?...look it up in the reference sections and get back on your way! 
  • Want to learn strategies for how to approach design in Fusion 360 in the first place, we've got that too!
  • Want to create photo-realistic renderings of your objects, we have that covered as well!

Autodesk Fusion360 is a "solid modeling" tool, and offers tremendous capabilities to those who know how to use it:

  • Create models that manufacturers around the world know how to build.
  • Run simulations on your models to see how they will react to real-world stresses...before you ever go into production!
  • Create models driven by parameters...work on a model for a few hours, and go "back in time" to change one variable, and your model instantly updates with your new design choice!
  • Create photo-realistic renderings and moving animations of your models to help people understand your product.

Fusion 360 can do all of this and more, and the software itself is FREE to download and use. Come join this class and take control of the physical objects in your life. If something around your house breaks, you can fix it. If you want to make your environment more beautiful, do it. Fusion360 (with 3D printing) can change your life. HoneyPoint3D training can help. Join us!

(Please note: we do NOT cover the HSM/CAM/Milling toolpath generation Fusion 360 workspace in any depth in this course. That is a more specialized topic that we are evaluating for another standalone course)


Who is the target audience?
  • This course of for everyone...no prior knowledge required to learn Fusion 360.
  • This course is for people who want to learn about product design via CAD modeling
  • This course is NOT for people who want to learn about the CAM environment in Fusion 360 (which we do not cover)

Introduction to Fusion 360
5 Lectures 14:39

Hello, and welcome to our Autodesk Fusion 360 class from HoneyPoint3D! We are happy and proud to bring this training to you, as we see Fusion 360 changing the lives of people every day. You can now become the next great product designer with this powerful tool....or simply take control over the things that break in your own home, 3D printing your way to more self-reliance. The choice is up to you!

As with all of our courses, please give us feedback on what you desire to see in the class, and if it is not there and we see demand for it, we will add it to the course.

Even if we don't see demand for your question, we will likely address it in our next free 3D printing and 3D design monthly webinar, so please feel free to ask questions, suggest topics, and enjoy your learning.

How to Navigate the Course
1 Lecture 02:31

There are four types of "lessons" in this class, and it is important to know what those are to be efficient with your time:

  1. Overview: Just that...describing how and why the Fusion 360 developers made the program the way they did. These are useful to know so that you get the big picture for how the components of Fusion 360 interact with each other. These are meant for you to watch and absorb, and not really to be followed step-by-step.
  2. Workflow: Going from start to finish for a project using multiple videos to do so. This shows how to use the tools, why and when to use certain tools over other tools to accomplish a specific project. these you would follow along.
  3. Targeted: These are standalone videos that help you answer typical "How do I accomplish XYZ?" questions. These also you would follow along.
  4. Reference: A large section of short videos that show you how to use the individual tools in Fusion 360. These videos are sorted by (in this order): -Lefthand Environment (the menu that exists on the top left, like Model/Patch/Simulation, etc.) -Top Row menu (like Model Environment --> Create Menu) -Tool Selection (like Model Environment --> Create Menu --> Extrude command)

Fusion 360 Framework - Overview On How the Software is Laid Out
5 Lectures 16:21

Remember this section is an of the "Overview" type...you can certainly follow along a bit with your own copy of Fusion 360, but this section is more about the "why Fusion works a certain way" and less about accomplishing specific steps.
