In this class we will take a look at Fusion 360 software’s simulation environment, and we’ll focus specifically on ensuring that you gain a solid understanding of how to get the most from each of Fusion 360 software’s different simulation types. We will work with a practical example for each of the study types, and we’ll learn how to make the best use of the options available in each of those studies. This session features Fusion 360.
- Grasp the basics of Static Stress, and set up an SS study
- Understand when to use modal frequency studies
- Get comfortable with thermal studies
- Demystify thermal stress and understand why it is important

Jay Tedeschi, ISM Senior Technical Marketing Specialist, joined Autodesk in October of 1994. His primary focus is promoting the use and adoption of Autodesk's suite of engineering, design and manufacturing software products.Prior to joining Autodesk, Jay worked as a Design Engineer in support of the United States Naval Undersea Systems/Warfare Center in New London CT. These responsibilities were primarily related to R&D and production design of various components of Attack Submarine Combat Systems. Subsequent to this, he was employed by an aerospace company, where he was part of an R&D team tasked with advanced product design for aircraft crew and passenger seating. His practical experience in industry has given Jay a broad background in multiple engineering disciplines, utilizing many different design tools and processes. These disciplines include shipbuilding, general outfitting design, electro-mechanical packaging as well as composite design and manufacture.
