Join Thom Tremblay for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Autodesk Fusion 360: Designing for Wood.
- [Male Narrator] If you're a lynda.com premium member, you have access to data files from the main page of this course. These data files are not available, or not intended for use, with every chapter of this course, but are available for substituting or short-cutting to key elements. There are data files available for leading up to assembling components, changing the appearance of components, patterning assembled components, creating a rendering, creating drawings, and creating cam output.
Once downloaded, these files can be added to Fusion 360 from their f3d extension. This is done by launching Fusion 360 by using the File, New Design From File, and going to the Exercise Files folder, selecting the data set that you'd like, and saying Open. You can then save this data set into your active project. Note that some behavior, regarding linked files, will be different when using these files than building the files through the course yourself.
If you don't have access to the predetermined files, you can simply follow along with the videos, build the data set along with the course, and have all of the same data. There's a lot to do, so let's get started.
- Sketching furniture
- Developing 3D components
- Updating the design
- Using Joint tools
- Rendering and sharing the design
