FusionNews highlights the key things that happened over the past week in the Fusion 360…
Instructables, lets make something!
We’ve been working with our friends at Instructables to create an area where over 180 great DIY projects created with Fusion 360 can be found. Below are just a few examples of the kinds of projects you’ll find in this new section on Instructables.
Fireplace Coffee Table – You can have an indoor fireplace safely in any home – no chimney necessary! Using an ethanol burner (carefully following the safety instructions), it’s perfectly safe to have an open flame without the need for a vent. With the right kind of fuel, there is no danger of harmful fumes tainting your indoor air quality.
3D Printed Robot Arm – This robot arm is made almost entirely of 3D printed parts that snap together. It has three servo-controlled joints, plus a rotating base and gripper. The arm is controlled by a series of buttons that connect to an Arduino Uno hidden in the base. A simple circuit makes connecting the servos and buttons to the Arduino easy, and makes set-up and assembly very quick.
Divisadero Chair – The Divisadero Chair is a piece exploring how 3D modeling software, 3D capturing, and 5-axis CNC milling can be combined to allow for a more sensitive use of materials. Traditional tools make squares and circles very well, and digital fabrication has made a huge mark in it’s ability to make more dynamic, organic, and complex shapes.
Mini filament spool and earring carousel stand – This 3D-printable design combines a decorative miniature 3D printer filament spool, and a turning carousel stand for hanging earrings.
This is just a small taste of what you will find on Instuctables. So take a look, go make something, and maybe even post your own DIY project for the community.
