Fusion 360 software could be your most powerful tool as a designer, maker, or engineer. Fusion 360 is an all-encompassing piece of software that helps users with processes from start to end, design to manufacture, utilizing CAD, CAM, Simulation, and Rendering to envisage a design. This class will focus on the middle of that process—Simulation. Simulation lets designers test (simulate) their designs before reaching the manufacturing process. This enables iterative changes without the time and money (and potential waste) that can go into making a product only to find it doesn't meet the standards needed. The Simulation workspace in Fusion 360 can feel a little intimidating at first glance—with so many options to choose from. We will cover all the different Simulation types, cover the basic steps, showing you which study type of simulation can be used depending on what your aims are. You will leave this class feeling more confident and ready to improve your whole design process!
