Have you ever been in a situation where your Fusion 360 or Inventor model failed, and you don't know why? (I know you have—I have too!) Did you know that your 3D model’s complex shape geometry is calculated by the Autodesk Shape Manager (ASM)? This class is aimed at beginner and intermediate Fusion 360 and Inventor users who want to deepen their knowledge of Fusion's and Inventor’s part modelling tools by understanding how it thinks. We will cover tips and tricks for 3D modelling complex shapes. We will explain how to avoid and overcome modelling practices which give you unexpected results. We will learn how to diagnose unexpected failures in your model and discuss ways to fix them. We hope that you will come away from this class with a clearer idea of how to build stable, robust models with Fusion 360 and Inventor. Come and learn how to improve your modelling skills.
- Describe bad modelling practices and how you can avoid and overcome them
- Diagnose and fix unexpected failures
- Create successful, stable 3D models
- List tips and tricks to ensure modelling success

Paul Munford is an Application Engineer for Graitec UK. Paul's background is in manufacturing for construction. Paul had 8 years of experience 'on the tools' before joining the CAD department in 2005. Paul spent a further seven years designing and drafting for joinery and interior fit out with AutoCAD and Autodesk Inventor before finally spending four years as a CAD/CAM manager for a high-end custom furniture contractor. As an Application Engineer, Paul handles licensing, deployment, and training for AutoCAD software and Inventor software, and Paul still uses AutoCAD and Inventor to create manufacturing 'Shop' drawings for Graitec’s customers. In his spare time Paul writes the CADSetterOut.com blog, and he is the author Mastering Autodesk Inventor 2016.
