Fusion 360

February 18, 2019 6:00 PM

This intro course will get you up and running with an extremely useful tool that is available both in the FabLab and at home - Autodesk Fusion 360.

In this workshop, we will ask you to bring along a small object (anything from a pencil to an iPod, but keep it simple!). As a group, we will discuss whose object would be the most appropriate the model during the workshop. Then, we will guide you through the process of modelling the chosen object in 3D from start to finish, highlighting key features and handy tips along the way.

Fusion 360 is an incredibly versatile piece of software, allowing you to design, simulate and manufacture all from one program. It’s freely available to students, hobbyists, and startups!

Will there be a break?

Yes, around half way through. We will have coffee/tea and biscuits at the ready!

What kind of object should I bring?

Think simple. A pencil, a phone, a paperclip, or a water bottle are all good examples. But don't stress about your decision, we will choose an appropriate object from the ones that everyone brings (and if they are all too complex then I will have a backup ready!).

What time will it finish?

We will aim to finish at around 9pm.
