Prototyping 101: Intro to Fusion 360, Course 1

September 30, 2019: 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Intro to Fusion 360: Use of UI and Collaboration Tools.

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.

Each attendee will need to 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.

The software is available for download here. We recommend attendees show up 30 minutes early if they need assistance in creating an account and downloading software. 

Class Fee: $45  CoG Members | $135 Non-Members

No previous experience necessary. Participants must be 18 or older.

The class will be held by Michael Lobsinger, Center Director of the Center for Economic Growth (CEG). As the Center Director, Michael is responsible for the day to day operations of CEG’s Business Growth Solutions and Manufacturing Extension Partnership programs. Michael has lead R&D and NPD teams at Boeing, Shell Global, and Quatic Apparel, and has mentored several product-based technology companies. Michael has a BS in Mechanical Engineering from North Dakota State University and an MBA from Rensselear Polytechnic Institute.
