Hands-on LAB: Become a Fusion 360 Volumetric Lattice Expert in 90 Minutes

During this hands-on session, you’ll dive deep into the world of volumetric lattice in Fusion 360 and how it enables you to design the product of your dreams. You’ll start by learning the basics of how the technology works and how to lattice a sample part. Then, you’ll put your new skills into practice and lattice an actual part. After covering foundational skills, you’ll use intermediate methods to create more complex lattices with ease. Finally, you’ll explore advanced and even expert techniques that push the limits of what is possible. If you design or engineer consumer products and want to take your designs to the next level and beyond, this session is for you!

A New Design Ride: Designing an Open-Source Adaptive Mountain Bike

Noel Joyce is a wheelchair user and industrial designer currently teaching design and innovation at NYU. A couple of years ago, Joyce started Project Mjolnir, the world’s first open-source adaptive mountain bike project. Project Mjolinr’s goal is to break down the barriers of entry for anyone to get into the sport by creating a bike based on a modular platform that is infinitely changeable, adaptable, and can be built anywhere. Join Joyce to learn more about the project, the design process, and what’s next.
