    During Autodesk University 2021, we shared a developed workflow for how designers can bring data together through designing the part, the PCB, and even how to manufacture the plastic components. With the complexity of electronic part designs, there are often various aspects that need to be considered for the part to both work and perform as expected. In this class, we will demonstrate how the Fusion 360 workflow has matured to incorporate mechanical engineering aspects to smooth this product design workflow. We will use a sample product, the Autodesk University Digital Badge, to demo how to integrate mechanical design requirements and simulation into the product design process.

    Key Learnings

    • Learn Fusion 360 modeling techniques for plastic part design.
    • Learn how to create an electronic design using the Fusion 360 electronics workspace.
    • Predict risks of manufacturing defects through the Injection Molding Simulation feature of the Simulation Extension.
    • Adapt to collaborative design changes during a product design process.
