With engineering changing rapidly and the development of additive manufacturing methods, designers and engineers are starting to push the boundaries of what is possible when designing and manufacturing components. Additive manufacturing has come on leaps and bounds over the last 5 years, with 3D printers now accessible to everyone at very low cost. More and more people are starting to turn their own ideas into reality. Using Fusion 360 and a desktop 3D printer we can now take art to part. In this half-day workshop, you will design and build a Fusion logo keyring. You will be walked through different modelling techniques within Fusion 360 that will allow you to explore and develop the design with the next generation of engineering tools. Technologies such as parametric design, T spline technology, and direct modelling will showcase the power of Fusion 360 and how quick it is to build complex parts.
- Understand how to create a complex part within Fusion 360
- See how the technology available today can help you share and collaborate on designs
- Develop the skills to prepare a part to 3D print
- Understand material selection criteria and how it impacts fit and finish of a part
