This combined class will cover both Course 1 and Course 2 of our Intro to Fusion 360 class.

This four-hour course, based on content from the Autodesk Fusion Mastery Course, will introduce you to the basics Fusion 360 environment and 3D modeling. 

Attendees will start with establishing an overall familiarity of the User Interface (UI), including Toolbars, Workspace, etc.  In order to efficiently create models in Computer Aided Design (CAD) programs, users need to establish an understanding of the workspace environment, terminology, and best practices, as well as the nuances of the chosen CAD platform.

Attendees will then focus on 3D modeling and design using the application of workspace and tools to create 3D models and drawings with examples and discussion around the use of the CAD platform.

Each attendee will need to bring their own laptop and create an AutoDesk user account. Attendees can select any version of Fusion360 for trial basis.  The class instructor recommends the non-commercial 1-yr license.  If the attendee is a student or educator with an EDU email address then they should select 3-year license option.
