Introduction to engineering design
Students and educators can find essential resources for introduction to engineering design classes.
Discover the power of Fusion with essential engineering design skills from Autodesk. Crafted collaboratively with respected academia, industry, and Autodesk experts, this curriculum prepares students for today's job market and future opportunities.
Fusion is a cloud-based tool for integrated industrial and mechanical design. This collection of resources supports introduction to engineering design classes at the secondary level.
Personalize this collection for classroom instruction or self-paced learning with a custom playlist.
Build core CAD skills using Fusion. These skill-based modules and 90-minute intro course kickstart your CAD knowledge in 3D modeling, drawing, sketching, and more. Learners can also apply their skills to 3D printing projects for independent problem solving. These resources offer engaging video tutorials, comprehensive guides, and interactive quizzes. Teachers will find supplements such as instructor guides and lecture slides to use in the classroom.
Assemblies and components
Assemblies bring parts together in a material world. With Fusion, students can practice design, mechanical assembly, and manufacturing skills seamlessly in a collaborative cloud environment. These curated materials include short, skill-based modules, an introduction to design for manufacturing course, and a mechanical assembly project for hands-on practice.
Problem solving with product design
Solve product and manufacturing challenges in new ways, making ingenuity and sustainability more attainable than ever. Cover core generative design skills with a short module or deepen knowledge with an introductory generative design course that includes an entire workflow. Students can also apply their product design knowledge with a sustainability project for hands-on problem solving.
Motion is a key element of mechanical design. These modules in animation and simulation cover key CAD elements for motion in a 3D environment. In our Introduction to 3D Modeling course, learners can design and engineer a reciprocating saw, iterate 3D mechanical designs, and solve new challenges.
