Join Thom Tremblay for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Fusion 360: Designing for Metal.
- The parametric solid modeling and assembly tools of Fusion 360 have their roots and workflows that have been established for the past 20 years. This course will not be a deep dive into Fusion 360 or focused on the fundamentals of sketching or parametric solid modeling. Instead, we will be focused on easy-to-use practices that will make you more productive when creating designs. I highly recommend that you review other courses on the fundamentals of parametric sketching, constraints and solid modeling, if you're not already familiar with these concepts.
We will also touch on accessing simulation, sometimes referred to as finite element analysis, and computer aided machining, or CAM tools, in this course. If you're familiar with these concepts, I'm sure you will find the Fusion 360 approach to them similar enough to quickly pick them up, but also unique in their approach. There's a lot to learn about Fusion 360 and working with metal, so let's get started.
- Setting up parameters
- Joining components
- Animating and rendering the design
- Testing alternative materials
- Creating the setup
- Publishing and posting the design
