Sketching

Create fully defined sketches using Fusion. 


Module overview

Learn the importance of creating 2D and 3D sketches as the basis for solid, surface, or freeform designs.  You will create fully dimensioned and constrained 2D and 3D sketches in Fusion with both simple entities such as lines and rectangles, as well as complex entities like splines and blend curves.  Through practice you will understand the importance of user parameters, construction geometry, and fully defined sketches as the foundation to 3D CAD modeling.

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

  • Create and edit 2D sketches. 
  • Apply dimensions and constraints. 
  • Create a 3D sketch. 
  • Use complex sketch entities.
