“Why does design so often struggle to communicate its value to the world when it's something we all recognize?” This was the question posed by Gray Holland, renowned founder of Alchemy Labs, 6 years ago when he developed the now famous Periodic Table of Forms, a table that explains how surface curves change the perception of a design. Designs have a feel. The sharp edges of a B-52 Bomber look menacing, while the curves of the VW Bug look friendly. In this hands-on workshop we will explore how Fusion 360 software unlocks these formative design types. We will explore the structure of Holland’s table and discover how to create different curvature setups. Whether you’re a new student of design and have no idea what a G0 curve is or you’re a veteran designer looking to learn new ways to adapt your portfolio aesthetics, this class sets out to inspire you to push the boundaries of design and provide you with tangible Fusion 360 software tactics to do it.
- Explore how modeling workflows impact design aesthetics
- Discover a methodology to deliberately craft the perception of a design
- Discover Fusion 360 software's approach to different advanced modeling techniques
- Challenge the way you approach design exploration
Michael Aubry is always pursuing better, faster and exciting ways to design. During the ten years he’s worked in the computer aided design field, he’s been privileged to work with 100s of customers who do everything from craftsman eyewear to giant fighting robots. He has professional experience in the bio-medical, wind energy, and computational fluid dynamics simulation industries. He loves working with anyone and everyone inspired to solve interesting problems. He proudly works as an Evangelist for Autodesk Fusion 360. He has a mechanical engineering degree from the University of Portland.
My passion for engineer stated with lego's and evolved to cars. The satisfaction taking something apart and putting it back together fixed was addicting. I went to school at NDSU receiving a bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering. I've done work for startups and larger companies like Case New Holland, Bobcat and Arctic Cat. Currently I am a Fusion 360 product manager focused on modeling and sheet metal.
