Introduction to Design for Manufacturing using Autodesk Fusion360

 

Overview

The focus of this module is centered around the implementation of CAD software towards additive manufacturing in the working environment. With a predominant use of Autodesk Fusion 360, learners will be enabled to produce complex three-dimensional geometries correctly set out to 3D print.  

 

The strategy in this course is to start developing basic geometries using the Autodesk Fusion 360 software towards understanding the software interface and processes. The interface will be followed by form manipulation and model preparation, both essential components in successful additive manufacturing.
