Fusion 360 For Hobbyists and Woodworkers
What you'll learn
- Learn to model your woodworking projects in a 3D environment.
- Virtually prototype your ideas.
- Create plans and technical drawings from your designs.
- Create digital design files for 3D printing and CNC machining.
- You should be able to use a PC at a beginner level.
This course is designed to teach Fusion 360 in the way that I learn best - with start to finish project tutorials. As a self-taught 3D modeler, I found it difficult and frustrating to understand a tool or process without having any context for when it might be used.
In "Fusion 360 For Hobbyists and Woodworkers" we model five different projects using only the tools necessary for that model. Each project gets progressively more difficult as you build on your newly acquired skills.

Mike Moyer and his wife Lauren run the YouTube channel Mike and Lauren" where they post DIY and how-to videos. While the majority of their projects are woodworking, Mike is not afraid to experiment with electronics, 3D printing, or car repairs. Mike uses Fusion 360 on a daily basis to "virtually prototype" his ideas before building them in the shop.
