3D printing has revolutionized the design and manufacturing production workflow, making the creation of design prototypes as easy as pushing a button. Fusion 360 software has become an indispensable tool in this revolution, letting designers and engineers create and iterate their designs faster than ever before. This course will step through the process of developing, printing, and iterating the design of a real product prototype-learning the different phases of the design used to create a 3D-printable final product. Fusion 360 and Print Studio are used every day for a variety of purposes, from the office, to the house, to production and marketing. This course will explore the creation of a unique spinner toy that you can assemble, personalize, and take home with you. This session will feature Fusion 360, Print Studio, and a live 3D printing demonstration.
- Understand where Fusion 360 fits into the prototype development process
- See how 3D printing can accelerate the design review process
- Learn how to use Fusion 360 to continuously modify a model, saving time on redesigning a part
- Identify the differences between design for manufacture and design for 3D print
