    Grumpy Sloth, a boutique mechanical keyboard startup in New Zealand, set about designing and manufacturing their own keyboard from the ground up, including a custom PCB. With initial concepts laid out in Fusion 360, they went on to create and detail the product model in Inventor, managing the design with Vault. While utilising the available connections through to Fusion 360 for developing the PCB and manufacturing the rest of the components in Fusion's Manufacturing Workspace.

    Key Learnings

    • Explain why you would want to use Inventor as your primary design tool, but Fusion 360 for Electronics Design & Manufacturing
    • Apply simple iLogic Rules to make use of iCopy functionality in Inventor
    • Integrate Fusion 360 into your Inventor workflows while still maintaining associativity.
    • Create a PCB in Fusion 360, driven from Inventor geometry, then include the PCB in your final Inventor assembly design.
