Project | Design a 3D label using CAD

Use your Fusion CAD skills and design a 3D name plate in Fusion that can be attached to a toolbox drawer, tool wall, storage bin, or other area to serve as a label. 

Module overview

Use your Fusion CAD skills and design a real-world, 3D model for use within your school or workplace.

In this project, you’ll create a 2D sketch and convert it into a 3D label, name plate, or placard, all of which can be attached to toolboxes, storage bins, or other items where labels are used.

After completing this project, you’ll be able to:

  • Create dimensioned sketches and add constraints to sketch geometry.
  • Use Extrude and Emboss tools to apply 3D features to text.
  • Apply physical material to a solid.
  • Add holes and insert fasteners.
