Prototyping 201: Furniture Design Using Fusion 360
October 27: 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
This 200 level course is designed to expand upon participants’ existing knowledge of working with Fusion360 by introducing project based lessons leveraging design methodologies for CNC router joining designs. Students will be introduced to joiner concepts, creating 3D designs and assemblies from drawings, and gaining familiarity with 2D contouring setup’s in manufacturing workspace.
The course will use Autodesk Fusion360 as the platform for the Computer Aided Design (CAD) tool and the Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) tool. Prior experience with Autodesk Fusion 360 is required for this course. We offer a 100-level course that serves as a pre-requisite for those interested.
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.
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. Participants must be 18 or older.
