Learn how to use Fusion 360 to generate mechatronics designs, including components such as enclosures and casings, motors, and wiring.
- [Justin] Autodesk Fusion 360 is a global leader in engineering and design software used throughout numerous industries. Hi, I'm Justin Flett and welcome to Fusion 360 Mechatronics Design. I've been working with Fusion 360 as a mechanical and electromechanical engineer and designer across numerous industries for over 10 years. In this course, we'll take a look at the entire process of generating a simplified mechatronics project. First, we'll discuss and recap some of the basics of the software and how to generate simple mechanical parts for a simplified robotic arm design. We'll then look at some more advanced Fusion 360 tools for plastics and casting design, such as draft, shell, ribs, and web, which are very commonly used within mechatronics designs for electromechanical enclosures or casings. Next we will discuss some additional tools that may help us with mechatronics assemblies, such as using imported electronics models such as motors or PCBs. We will also discuss one method for routing wires or cables within an electromechanical project. Finally, we'll learn how to generate some final outputs commonly used in industry, such as drawing files, step files, or PBF exports. By the end of this course, we'll have a strong foundation of how Fusion 360 can be used to generate not only mechanical projects, but electromechanical projects as well, and we'll be able to quickly and efficiently generate some mechatronics project documents. Now, let's get started with Fusion 360 Mechatronics Design.
