Class: From 0 to Fusion360 in 2 hours - Monday, April 23rd @ 7:00 to 9:00


#1

If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to use CAD (Computer Aided Design) but haven’t quite done it, this class is for you!

We will explore Autodesk’s Fusion 360, an all-in-one CAD program with a free enthusiast license. Come with no experience and walk away with enough exposure to make things for 3d printing or laser cutting.

Doors open at or before 6:30pm, class starts promptly at 7pm.

Also, if you have something you want to show (such as a cool project you made) please let me know ahead of time and we’ll work on how to work it into the night.

This sounds terrific, @mike!

What do you recommend people bring to your class? A laptop with Fusion 360 installed?


#3

You are welcome to come with a laptop with Fusion 360 installed, pen and paper, both, or nothing. I won’t be walking through how to install Fusion the day-of, so if you intend to follow along please make sure it is installed and you’ve signed up with an account before class.

Otherwise, bring yourself!


#4

Sounds great, I’m in :slight_smile: Thank you!

#6

I’m 92% sure that I am in…


#7

some things I’ve made with Fusion360. I might not be able to bring any of them:







#8

Hi, I will come to this for sure. Looking forward to it!


#9

So far it looks like we’ve got some great demos lined up in addition to the main training.

@iMakeRobots has graciously agreed to show off one of his assemblies for one of his robots, and @eapenmathew will show off his process for turning a rough direct model from a different CAD program into a Fusion360 model for use in 3d printing.

Looking forward to seeing you all next week!


#10

I’m a bit late to the game but is there still room in your class?


#11

Of course! See you there Monday. If you want to sign up on the meetup page, it might help with some groundswell.


#12

If anyone gets to the space early for the class and gels like opening the door lemme know cuz I’m hanging out drinking coffee till it starts


#13

Thanks (had to leave before the end) for the great class…
Feel much better about trying to use 360 now…


#14

Sorry @packetbob just saw this.


#15

Great talk! Thanks everyone. I feel like I have some basic skills now that will help me poke around in Fusion360 and go from there. :slight_smile:


#16

Thanks everyone for coming. If you want to talk more f360, check out the #mech-cad chat on slack!

If you want a more 1:1 session for fusion, give me a shout and I can help!
