Thinking BIG and Printing BIGGER with Fusion 360

Session Description

The use of 3D printing for industrial applications increased rapidly over the past few years. Whether it is used to produce prototypes or final use parts, almost every industry has had some interaction with the technology.
This panel will show how we used Fusion 360 to collaborate, design and build an innovative, large-scale 3D printer with a build volume of 1m3 with a nozzle size of 1-4 mm.
With its large build envelope and custom high flow rate print head, significantly larger parts can be created at higher material deposition rates. By leveraging the integrated capabilities of Fusion 360 for designing, simulating, 3D printing and CNC machining all the components together with real-time collaboration features, two machines have been built simultaneously at the University of Warwick and the Autodesk Technology Centre in Birmingham.
This talk will also highlight how we used the unique potential of automated generative workflows for designing for both structural and cooling components.
