Introduction to Design for Manufacturing
Explore the design for manufacturing workflow, validate models, and practice creating G-code—the programming language needed to instruct a CNC machine how to move. Practice the basics of part and assembly design, and learn tools such as animation, rendering, and simulations using Fusion 360.
After taking this course, you'll be able to:
- Explain the design for manufacturing process, used to transform a digital model into a physical part, through CNC programming.
- Summarize the toolset available in Fusion 360.
- Demonstrate knowledge and skills in Fusion 360 by applying design and manufacturing workflows to turn digital parts into physical prototypes.
Learn about digital manufacturing, the manufacturing process, and future trends.
Learn the design aspects of Fusion 360 to create fully defined sketches and models. These areas comprise the core design functionality of Fusion 360.
Learn how to create and manage assemblies, animations, renders, and detailed drawings.
Learn how to create a milling setup and toolpaths using the Fusion 360 Manufacturing Workspace.
Define, solve, and review a static stress simulation using the Fusion 360 Simulation Workspace.
