Design a simple battery by creating a 2D sketch and extruding. Learn how to navigate with a three-button scroll wheel mouse by panning, zooming, and orbiting.
- [Instructor] Okay, enough about the user interface…and changing settings,…let's finally get to making a part.…And the part we're going to begin with…is going to be the battery.…Now the battery is relatively a simple part to make.…It only requires creating a sketch of a rectangle…and then extruding it,…but it follows the normal procedure we're going to use…to create any part,…and that involves starting with a 2D sketch…and then extruding it to turn it into a 3D shape.…
So let's go ahead and jump right in.…We'll start by going to our sketch menu,…so we're going to click on sketch,…and then down to create sketch.…Once we do that, the origin pops in,…and if we're new to three design,…we're going to have to get used to this idea of…working in a 3D environment…and telling Fusion what plane we want to use.…Now this is a bit confusing at first,…but you will get a hang of it eventually.…So for now, the important thing to note is that…we have three planes that we're looking at:…we have our XY plane, we have our YZ plane,…
