    Are you starting with a blank screen? Or do you have a library of components? This is the top-down versus the bottom-up design question. Most designs use both. Your workflow should start with a strategy to get the most out of these styles of design. This class will dive into these different workflows in detail, using Fusion 360 software. Explore top-down design, including the body or component—what's the difference and why you should start with either; workflows to create in place components—starting off on the right foot; and when and how to reuse the designs you’re making. Learn about techniques for bottom-up design, including upload—what’s the best way to get large or small designs from anywhere into Fusion 360 software; file management via Fusion 360—keeping track of it all; design preparation—how to better prepare designs for insert and use; and distributed design workflows—inserting and using the parts you already have.
