Fusion 360 3D CAD/CAM software offers several modeling environments for different types of modeling, from technical details to organic surfaces. This class will explore methods for modeling complex shapes in a simple, efficient, and direct workflow by taking advantage of T-Splines geometry. This approach is useful for concept development in product design, where designers and engineers can take advantage of CAD software to explore potential shapes for attractive and dynamic consumer products.
- Understand the benefits of Fusion 360 software’s direct modeling environment, named Sculpt
- Learn innovative modeling methods that take advantage of T-Splines geometries
- Learn how to generate and explore complex organic shapes with good surface quality
- Learn how to integrate workflows that maximize form development and visualization of design concepts
