Fusion 360 for 3D Printing - Designing with Components
What you'll learn
- Design a 3D printable led tea light that turns on and off.
- Feel comfortable tackling multi-part designs by effectively using components and other design tools in Fusion 360.
- Take a design from concept to working prototype.
- A basic knowledge of Autodesk Fusion 360 is recommended prior to taking this course but not required.
- See Designing for 3D Printing with Fusion 360 course by Vladimir Mariano if you are a complete beginner.
This course is an excellent sequel to the Designing For 3D Printing with Fusion 360 course by Vladimir Mariano. We learn how to tackle a multi-part design by taking advantage of using components and other powerful design tools in Fusion 360. We will design an LED tea light that functions as a mechanical switch and can be used to light up our other 3d prints. It's an excellent example of using 3d printing for practical and functional designs.
At the end of this course you will have gained the design skills and confidence to take a multi-part design from concept to 3d printed prototype.
We will cover many sketching and modeling concepts and also go through some best practices when designing for 3d printing such tolerances needed for a snug fit when assembling two or more parts.
I will guide you through easy to follow step by step instructions as we create a rewarding model.
Who this course is for:
- Anyone looking to learn how to design for 3D printing or looking to expand their knowledge and improve their skills.
- Great for students, teachers, hobbyists, inventors, artists, and makers.
Vladimir is the instructor of the top selling online course Designing for 3D Printing with Fusion 360. He has taught over 10,000 students how to design for 3D printing. Vladimir runs two makerspaces in Connecticut and teaches Fusion 360 and 3D printing at a local college.
3D design and printing allows him to get all the crazy ideas out of his head and turn them into real objects. Some are practical while others are well, fun.
He has a degree in Geology from West Virginia University and a RobotC Programming Instructor Certification from Carnegie Mellon Robotics Academy.
