Intro To Fusion360 CAD for 3D Modeling
Have your 3d creation needs outgrown the free online tools? Do you want to create 3d content using dimensional data and precision? AutoCad’s Fusion 360 is an Online/Offline full featured tool that is now available for free to students and hobbyists and startups. Getting past the main screen paralysis can be hard. Where to start, how to organize the work? Even doing the basics can be intimidating when you first dive in. This intro class is to help you get started and past the blank workspace. I will introduce basic workflow and a number of useful tips that have really helped me to get productive. This will be a very interactive class and we will likely veer off on tangents based on participant needs and desires. Instructor: Bret Lanius, hobbyist and maker. I am a self taught 3d designer and just want to share what I’ve learned. Please come with Fusion 360 account created and software loaded. You will want to have a 3 button mouse. Download the software: Here is how you activate the Free hobbyist license:
